Cheryl Buck – Transforming the Cancer Narrative
In this episode we welcome Cheryl Buck, a self-proclaimed cancer anthropologist, and one of the most important forces in changing the cultural narrative of this hated chronic disease.
Cheryl shares her experience with THE HUNGER PROJECT and her unprecedented work in changing a global conversation on the subject. Today she takes advantage of those tools to launch CancerTalks with the goal of weaving intimate stories of transformation for people who have been touched by cancer. Their goal is to change the cancer narrative and co-create a vision of growth, hope and interdependency between humans, systems and nature.
Cheryl Buck was a long-time executive at THE HUNGER PROJECT, where they helped to shift the widespread perception that hunger was inevitable to a conversation where hunger could really end. She is the founder of CancerTalks whose objective is to transform the warlike, defeatist and victimizing narrative of cancer through conversations of empowerment, love and community.
