We hit the ground running with episode 201 with an in-person recording with a good friend of Mike & Megan’s; Jenna, to talk about her experience with breast cancer and how video games helped her get through it!
In more detail, Jenna starts with her history of video games, before delving into her cancer story; when she found the lump, the diagnosis process, the treatment itself and what was going on in the world when this happened. Jenna explains what radio & chemo therapy feels like, the symptoms she felt while going through the treatment, how frequently she had to have it, the results of the treatment and her life following, including how video games, such as the Legend Of Zelda, helped her through the post-cancer isolation during the COVID lockdowns – this is a conversation for everyone, as everyone knows, or will know, someone who gets cancer.
Jenna’s breast cancer type was HER-2 Negative.
Listen to Megan’s COVID video gaming experience in episode 87 of GCC!
