Yes, You Can Laugh Your Way Through Cancer

Being diagnosed with cancer can be frightening, but it also gives you license to get away with a lot of things you wouldn't do otherwise. Laugh With Kathy takes you on a journey through breast cancer and finding humor in the diagnosis, treatment and survival of the disease. 

Kathy Lariviere uses humor to overcome any difficulties she encounters in life - including cancer.  Why? Crying gives her a headache. Therapy is expensive.  But...laughing always makes her feel better.

If you know anyone who is going through difficulty, especially with a cancer diagnosis, they will thoroughly enjoy this interview with Kathy. 

In her words: "Even though I didn't have a choice in the diagnosis I received, I did have a choice on how I got through it, and how I let my family and friends see me handle it."



She manages to find the humor in the worst of circumstances.  Here is her list of positives that came from her experience with cancer:
  • I got to relocate my bustline (it has been moving south for years)
  • I didn't have to shave my legs for months
  • It took a lot less time getting ready in the morning
  • I had a great excuse for buy new lingerie especially when all the pretty bras come in the smaller sizes
  • I didn't have to buy any more expensive hair products - I didn't have ANY hair
  • For the rest of my life, I got to blame forgetfulness on "chemo brain."
  • You can shame bad drivers with your bald head

Laugh with Kathy as you listen to her humorous and inspiring

interview and why it is a GOOD to smash pumpkins and 

throw eggs:
