Kimiko Tobimatsu (author of Kimiko Does Cancer) was diagnosed with breast cancer at just 25. She quickly learned that the breast cancer experience was more than runs for the cure and pink ribbons, especially as a queer and mixed race woman. In this episode, Kimiko talks managing symptoms for years to come, how cancer affects your relationships and gender normativity throughout a long medical process.
