Cover image for lecture: My Experience of 'Laughing at Cancer'

Lecture Overview

6 years ago, Ros Ben-Moshe had a colonoscopy that revealed bowel cancer. She was given 3 options and told to 'enjoy' making the decision on her treatment. With a background in laughter therapy and mindfulness, Ros decided she had to start practicing what she preached. Here's her personal story on surviving bowel cancer.
