10 May One Percent Podcast Interview – Vulnerability is power.
The OnePercent podcast was created to share the stories of young adults who are surviving or battling cancer. Each week you will hear two stories that will give you a new perspective on navigating the cancer journey. You will hear authentic stories from all types of cancer patients. Every story will inspire you to look for the moment or collection of specific moments in your own life where you can intentionally change your outlook from negative to positive. We will give you perspectives from all angles on how to move away from anxiety and fear and move towards truth and hope.

On episode 52, my guest Sara Quiriconi and I discuss a full range of topics such as eating disorders, addiction, sexuality, cancer, mental health issues and life after cancer. I have tons of respect for her gratitude and vulnerability.” – Truitt Taylor, Cancer Survivor and Founder of The OnePercent Podcast
1. We’re all fighting a battle (7:04)
“You can judge a book by its cover — but, you really gotta read the pages in between. That’s where you learn a lot about somebody that, that nobody has an easy path. But, there are lessons to be learned along the way.”
2. Coping with emotions (9:40)
“Right around the age of 14, when I really started to struggle with “Who I am” and who I was. That’s when there started to be a “plate shift” and I separated my mind and my body. And, my body started to become the enemy in many ways. I started to act on an eating disorder — anorexia and bulimia — as a way to cope with emotions…that I had no idea how to cope with at that age.”
