Happiness through Hardship

Feb 2 2022 • 50 mins

A medical diagnosis can bring lots of unanswered questions and on this episode, we've tackled many of them. Today's guest on "Happiness through Hardship" - The Podcast is one of Instagram's favorite doctor's, Dr. Eleonora Teplinsky. A board-certified medical oncologist, Dr. Teplinsky specializes in treating women with breast and gynecologic cancers while also focusing on cancer risk-reduction and healthy living. Dr. Teplinsky has a committed following on social media and also hosts the INTERLUDE podcast. On this episode, she helps us debunk some cancer myths and provides overall best practices. We would be grateful for your help supporting cancer patients, too, by donating "Happiness through Hardship", a cancer book and journal, to her cancer center and worldwide podcast listeners. (See info below.) Many of us are touched by cancer and could use credible information, which is why I love this episode. Whether you have cancer or not, Dr. T will teach you something useful including the benefits of remaining positive and taking care of yourself during treatments. She also answers questions that you, the listeners, sent in prior to our interview. Dr. T not only serves her patients but those with cancer questions worldwide.
