Share Your Story: Kim Sorrelle

Share Your Story: Kim Sorrelle

Kim Sorrelle is an entrepreneur, director of a non-profit organization, author, speaker, and lover of all people. Four months after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis, her husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, passing away just six weeks later. Kim began questioning the true meaning of love so she dedicated a full year to figure it out. The things that she discovered about love are unlike anything you've heard before and are chronicled in her book, Love Is.

  • 01:32: How did this breast cancer diagnosis come about?  
  • 03:58: He just grabbed onto me and held me.  
  • 06:25: What stage and what type of breast cancer did you have? 
  • 08:53: I had to have a complete hysterectomy because of the hormone receptors.  
  • 10:05: I had a male doctor I told him to pick the size.  
  • 14:50: I'm trying to call him and I'm not getting anywhere because his phone is off. 
  • 17:01: The numbers were absolutely outrageous way higher than in the last lecture.  
  • 19:29: Why do you want your husband to have pancreatic cancer? 
  • 21:44: He had one round of chemo and his numbers never returned to a point to be able to have another round. 
  • 23:59: We had hospice involved from the beginning and had an incredible experience with them.  
  • 26:24: It just happened that fast.  
  • 28:18: She seemed 100% at peace and the hospice nurse was like okay she's probably going to go today. 
  • 30:07: I would have done anything in the world for that man. 
  • 32:20: What is one thing you wish you had known at the very beginning? 
  • 34:15: It was more of a transition than just a moment in time with him leaving.  
  • 35:28: If you could only do one thing to improve health care in the U.S., what would it be and why?  
  • 37:02: I don't think doctors get any kind of training on how to talk about dying. 
  • 39:15: The two focuses of the lab were pancreatic and breast cancer.  
  • 40:44: Thriver Rapid Fire Questions.  
  • 41:49: Aside from Cancer U, what is one resource you would recommend for cancer patients and caregivers?
