The Shrewsbury Biscuit Podcast: Loren Stokes & Verity Jane

Today AL is joined by 2 warriors who have not only survived cancer but are doing all they can to help raise awareness and help those affected by the horrific disease.

Verity Jane joined AL on Pod Aid to talk about her own journey through cancer treatments and recover. Despite the terrible ordeal Verity and her family went through, she remains a strong advocate for all affected by cancer.

Loren Stokes joins us to talk about how her life got turned upside down when she had to have a laryngectomy because a tumour had grown from her salivary glands and down into her neck. This means Loren has to press a valve on her throat to talk, effectively having to hold her breath while she speaks. Despite still having complications with her health Loren is a driving force against cancer.

We are here to talk about the shared experiences that survivors have when it comes to treatment and how even in the darkest of times comfort can be found in the most unexpected places.

Loren is now part of Stand Up To Cancer, which means she will have an opportunity to play a large role in passing that strength of hers onto others.

I believe I can converse about anything, but I couldn’t have done this episode without Verity. To be able to sit back and watch Verity and Loren bond over something as brutal as cancer treatment goes to show how important communication is in circumstances like this. I am grateful to both Loren and Verity for this and I hope it does some good with whoever this audio finds. – AL
