Off Our Chests: 

A Candid Tour Through The World Of Cancer

Wednesday, May 26th 7:00 – 8:30 pm via Zoom

Join longtime friends of Hope Connections Dr. John and Liza Marshall as they discuss with Jennifer Griffin, National Security Correspondent, Fox News, and Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Survivor, how a triple-negative breast cancer diagnosis changed Liza’s life as well as that of her oncologist husband.

Written in alternating voices, this book offers a deeply personal, wry, and insightful look at cancer, medicine, healing, and marriage.

Reserve your spot here.  Ticket cost: $50, which is donated to Hope Connections, and includes a signed copy of the book, which you can pick up at Hope Connections or have delivered.

Kudos to John & Liza, whose book was just named one of the Washington Post’s 10 books to read in May! Check it out here!

To learn more about John & Liza’s journey, watch the below video interview with local news anchor, Doreen Gentzler.
