36: GRAB YOUR BOOBS!!!!!

Well This Sucks

It's so easy to get caught up in the frustrations of the day to day. Especially in Los Angeles, where competition is fierce and it often seems like you'll never be successful (enough) or rich (enough) or young (enough) or pretty (enough).

All it takes is one piece of difficult news to throw your entire life into perspective.

We only hung out with Danielle Hernandez for a few hours, but in the time it was wildly clear just how strong and fucking cool she is.

It's hard to talk about things like cancer. It's uncomfortable and scary and sad and just... big feeling. Hell, we (well, Angela, mostly) even had a hard time saying the word "cancer" during our podcast. It can feel like there is no right way to discuss the fears around such a terrible (albeit wildly common) illness.

Danielle did an incredible job of making us feel comfortable...which shouldn't have been her job! But it's something we imagine she has to do on a regular basis. We have such a fear in this country of talking about the tough stuff. We avoid these subjects for some sort of self-preservation, but in doing so end up alienating the very individuals who need us most.

That's what's so exciting about WELL THIS SUCKS. The podcast takes us behind-the-scenes of Danielle's journey with cancer. It's hilarious and touching and awkward and difficult and fun. It's human. It allows us to see Danielle as more than just the "Cancer Girl", and provides support to others who may be going through difficult times.

But don't let us tell you about it, check it out for yourself.
