Jamie Cesanek

In this episode of the “CURE® Talks Cancer” podcast, breast cancer survivor Tomika Bryant discusses her cancer journey, advocacy work and how blogging helped her get through treatment.

Tomika Bryant is a breast cancer survivor, patient advocate and blogger, among other things. She uses her platform and experiences with cancer to support others going through the journey and raise awareness and funding for research.

In this episode of the “CURE® Talks Cancer” podcast, Bryant shares her story, offers advice and discusses her blog, Life in Pumps, as well as her advocacy work.

“Write, journal, because it's therapeutic,” Bryant said. “Don't go to sleep with all that on your mind. It's hard to get rest as is just from dealing with all of the complications and side effects that come from being a cancer patient. But clearing your mind is one of the best ways for when you lay down and go to sleep. So for me, my blog also became that.”
