S3EP13 -Navigating Metastatic Breast Cancer and Dating as an AYA w/ Chiara
byRosalina and Shauna

Chiara, who faced stage IV breast cancer at 27, chats with Rosalina and Shauna about the misconceptions about cancer and the challenges of relationships after diagnosis. She opens up about the emotional and physical struggles of living with stage IV cancer, reflecting on how cancer changes who you are and what you want in life.

On dating apps, Chiara didn’t have much luck. She shares experiences of ghosting, judgment, and fetishization(yes, you read that correctly!), leading her to disengage from these platforms. But one day, at a friend’s party, she met David. After a few months, they hit it off and became more than just friends. However, Chiara shares how being in a serious relationship while dealing with a terminal illness is difficult for both her and David.
