Tune in to C-Sessions. . .with Randall Broad every Wednesday at 4 p.m. as he interviews patients, physicians, pharmaceutical, policy experts and others fighting for your rights to the answers you need.
In 2008, Randall was diagnosed with Stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC.) Following his ‘deemed inoperable’ surgery, the surgeon’s prognosis was a bleak one. He was told, “You best get your things in order.” With this directive, Randall set about “re-ordering” his life by reprioritizing his values. First on the list was his family; to have them know each other in a meaningful way.
Next on the relationship ‘to do’ list was his extended cancer family with focus on support, communication, and inspiration. Twelve years following his lifestyle reboot, he continues amongst the living and sharing healing stories.
The cancer journey led Broad to chronicle key learnings for posterity sake. What materialized was the Amazon best seller, It’s an Extraordinary Life – Don’t Miss It. The book has since opened the door to the world of professional speaking and full-time healthcare advocacy. The take away from this experience was to realize how much people engage by listening to stories…real life stories that touch on the fabric of life.
Last year, Broad subsequently created the program, C-Sessions. The goal, supporting cancer patients in their journey by creating a healthcare-focused program designed to improve communication and collaboration between Patients and their Healthcare Provider. The bottom-line, to improve outcomes.
