Karla Stephens Tolstoy believes in revealing the truth and getting the real story out there. For the past two years, her Stand Up Speak Up Podcast has told the stories of those who had been neglected or forgotten by mainstream society. While recording these episodes, Karla was fighting her own battle to be heard against doctors and medical professionals. She knew something was wrong but couldn’t get answers beyond “it is all in your head”. Finally, in October 2018, Karla was told her own truth – She had Stage 4 Breast Cancer and it had spread throughout her body.
The My Boobs Are Killing Me is a no-holds-barred raw account of what it is like to live with cancer. Karla brings her fierceness and no-f*cks-given humour to conversations about the worst and best that this journey has brought to her life. Sit back and enjoy as Karla sips her chemo cocktail and chats with her nurse, Erin DeJong.
Karla has told many people’s stories in podcast form. This story is her’s.
