Two New Moms And a Cancer Diagnosis


Centipede is a video from the Cancer’s Margins project. This project used a community-and-arts based approach to exploring sexual and gender diversity, and experiences of cancer health, support and care.  The researchers worked with the participants to develop a series of digital stories that looked at how LGBT2Q people locate and share knowledge after they’ve been diagnosed and treated for breast or gynecologic cancer.

In Centipede two new moms reflect on how they dealt with the “curveball” of a breast cancer diagnosis while parenting a young child.
