DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization,
announced the launch of a new podcast, Real PinkTM,
debuting on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher and all other

series that brings people together for meaningful and honest
conversations about breast cancer – tackling tough, emotional or
life-changing issues and topics.
Each week, host Adam Walker will interview people who have been impacted
by breast cancer, or those on the front lines in the fight against the
disease, including celebrities, survivors, people living with the
disease, physicians, researchers and advocates to offer their personal
perspectives and first-hand information and guidance. Through Real

cancer – including patients and the people in their lives who love them
– by providing the information needed to make informed decisions.
“We know that a breast cancer diagnosis impacts every single aspect of
life, including relationships, finances, jobs and everything in
between,” says Linda Fisk, senior vice president, marketing at Susan G.
Komen. “It is our hope that the raw discussions on Real Pink are
just the start of continued conversations with friends, family, doctors,
nurses and other trusted members of their team.”
In Real Pink’s debut episode, Walker and Samantha Harris,
entertainment journalist, Emmy-winning television host and breast cancer
survivor, discuss her emotional journey of diagnosis and treatment. Real
Pink is available now on Apple
Stitcher and iHeart Radio. New episodes will be available every Monday
and will include interviews from guests such as Titus O’Neil, WWE
Superstar and Kikkan Randall, 5-time Olympic cross-country skiing
