Guest: Shay Moraga, Shay's Warriors

Cancer impacts so many lives. Look to the left, right, ahead or behind you and you are likely to see someone whose life has been touched in one way or another by the C-word. And, it sucks!

On this very special episode that touches so close to home for the Big Conversations, Little Bar family, Patrick Evans and Randy Florence welcome a champion of the battle to help survivors. Shay Moraga is the founder of Shay’s Warriors. In 2016, she heard the words “you’ve got Cancer.” There were a lot more words with that diagnosis. And, they were scary. Hear about her amazing journey from being told the odds of survival from her disease (Triple Negative Breast Cancer) were very low to eventually learning she had no detectable cancer. Throughout her illness, Shay had no problem finding medical and emotional support. Then there was a sudden recognition that post-cure was an entirely different thing. Dealing with everything from the dark thoughts to the physical challenges motivated this Coachella Valley hero to create Shay’s Warriors.

Simultaneous to telling this important story, co-host Randy Florence has been tackling his second bout of Prostate Cancer. How did this happen with no prostate? What have the challenges been and how to deal with them? That brought Randy and Shay together and on this episode of Big Conversations, Little Bar, you will learn an abundance about persevering through some of life’s toughest challenges and hopefully ending the day with a good result. And, gentlemen, you are reminded to get your PSA checked.

It's an impactful occasion at the corner booth in the Center of the Coachella Valley Universe – Skip Paige’s Little Bar.
