Turning Cancer Into Comedy

In this week’s episode, we spoke with wife, mother, comedian and colon cancer survivor Heather Tolley-Bauer about finding comedy as an outlet to her diagnosis.

PUBLISHED April 04, 2019
In the face of a cancer diagnosis and learning she was positive for Lynch Syndrome, wife and mother Heather Tolley-Bauer used comedy as an outlet to cope with her diagnosis and raises awareness for colon cancer.

Also the founder of Hyphen-Up, the “stay-at-home mom and a kick-ass cancer survivor” hopes to help others embrace who they are.
