It’s likely everyone listening to this broadcast has been touched by cancer. Perhaps you’re a survivor, or currently undergoing treatment. Or maybe a friend or family member has been through the disease. On The Point, we hear stories of those living with cancer in our region.
We talk about the work of Cape Wellness Collaborative, the nonprofit that offers free wellness therapies and free healthy meal delivery, as well as support groups for people dealing with cancer, and those supporting them. Abigail Field, the incoming CEO of Cape Wellness Collaborative joins us.
We listen to audio excerpts from the Stories of Hope podcast produced by the collaborative, including Sarah Burrill, one of the founders of the Collaborative and a cancer survivor.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
