Had a great experience this morning chatting with the fine people over at KGW's Portland Today to promote my show tomorrow night with the Portland Storytellers' Guild. Sometimes I feel a little weird about working "the cancer angle" - especially since my show on Saturday doesn't really have anything to do with it, but afterwards one of the other guests on the show came up to me to tell me his teenage daughter was recently diagnosed with the same kind if cancer I had. Folds in nicely with what I was saying on the segment about how I love when people come up to talk to me after a show and tell me their own stories and connect about something real. He asked if he could put me in touch with his daughter and I very happily agreed. So if she and I are going to hang out this was all worth it!
