The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

This October, TBG is celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month by sharing resources and celebrating the experiences of survivors. Studies have shown that breast cancer disproportionately impacts Black women. However, a breast cancer diagnosis does not have to equal a death sentence. Joining me today is patient advocate and breast cancer thriver Marissa Thomas. Marissa was diagnosed in 2015 with stage II breast cancer and is now the co-founder and CEO of For The Breast of Us, an inclusive online community for Women of Color impacted by breast cancer. During our conversation, Marissa and I discussed her experience as a breast cancer survivor, the importance of family and how a parent can relay their diagnosis to a child, and embracing changes in your body and personhood after breast cancer.
