Episode 6 – with ERICA PORTER & The Cancer Warriors Podcast


From surviving to thriving.

“From Surviving to Thriving.” – this is the core mission of The Cancer Warriors Podcast. Hosted by cancer thrivers Rick Bassman and ERICA PORTER and featuring guests from across the spectrum of the cancer world, this podcast will lend perspective and insight to help cancer survivors, thrivers, and warriors, as well as their caregivers and loved ones, navigate the often confusing, overwhelming, and complex journey from diagnosis through treatment, recovery, and survivorship. All modalities and viewpoints are on the table, including advances in Western treatments, alternative modalities, and holistic and integrative approaches to healing and recovery.

With the right mindset, crisis transforms into opportunity, and a journey of empowerment unfolds. We know from experience that despite the odds, there is an abundance of hope, and no matter what, there are gifts, lessons, silver linings, and nuggets of gold to be discovered on the journey. Above all, our intention, hope, and mission are to inspire, uplift, and offer hope in the moments of darkness to serve as a reminder that the Light Always Wins.
