Two-time breast cancer thriver, Carol Wyllie, offers real insight, encouragement, and a few laughs to those facing cancer, illness, or any of life’s challenges. Her voice is authentic and sometimes irreverent as she shows us how to lead with faith and gratitude in the face of our toughest battles.

  • 01:23: Take us back to the beginning of breast cancer. 
  • 03:15: They showed me the X-ray and it looked like somebody had dipped their fingers in paint and splattered them on.  
  • 05:37: I've never seen someone try so hard to get out of chemo. 
  • 07:28: I could go down the rabbit hole of bitterness and blame. 
  • 09:41: I don't want to say or even imply that we give ourselves cancer.  
  • 11:37: It was four rounds of chemo, and it was delivered through an I. V. 
  • 14:02: A lot of the Western doctors won't even acknowledge that this is a thing. 
  • 15:55: What was your worst moment? 
  • 18:43: Once your head gets to the right temperature, they begin your chemo. 
  • 21:01: Is your hair back to normal now?  
  • 23:20: I kept my eyebrows and my eyelashes the whole time, strangely enough.  
  • 24:19: What was your best moment? 
  • 26:02: What is the one thing you wish you'd known at the beginning? 
  • 27:12: If you could only do one thing to improve health care in the U.S., what would it be and why?  
  • 30:14: Thriver Rapid Fire Questions  
  • 31:11: Aside from Cancer U, what is one resource you would recommend for cancer patients and caregivers?

Carol Wyllie has been a writer all her life but Chemo Pissed Me Off was her first published book. It became a bestseller and is a humorous and sometimes irreverent message of faith and gratitude in the midst of our toughest battles. She took something as ominous as cancer and turned it into an opportunity for growth.
