Sterling K. Brown fights cancer.
Bristol Myers Squibb has teamed up with the Emmy-winning actor to shine a light on the lives of Americans dealing with cancer. With its new video series, “Survivorship Today: What It’s Like to Live with Cancer,” Bristol-Myers Squibb is aiming to advance the public’s understanding of the day-to-day experiences of cancer patients. Each video shares perspectives from cancer survivors around the country.
In the series’ first episode, survivors Bin and Jamie detail their journeys with the disease. Jamie recounts developing cancer right after giving birth, and her husband having to drive her to the closest cancer center, four hours away from home, every week. Bin speaks about the fear, shame and needless secrecy that surrounds diagnosis and treatment in the African American community, especially with men. Both impart through their conversations that “the road to recovery is through community.”
