142: "I do a lot because I'm excited to still be alive." Recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Jaymee WINS

Author, producer, and talent-in-progress, Jaymee WINS returns from Ep. 007 (three years ago!) to discuss Filipino American History Month and, for the first time on TFAW Project, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Jaymee shares when she was first diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer on October 15, 2016, how she rechannels her personal journey into her books and upcoming documentary, her most recent (and almost fatal) trip to the Philippines, how she continues to appreciate the simple joys in life, what cancer survivors really need, and much more.
