KPBS Science and Technology reporter Peggy Pico is the type of person who usually gets enthusiastically involved in the stories she covers. But this time, Peggy got more involved than she ever expected. Several months ago, Peggy was diagnosed and has been undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Today we kick off a special series in which Peggy will not only share her professional expertise but allow us to experience her personal cancer journey.

In this ongoing series Peggy will guide us through innovations in cancer treatment and survival rates, the psychology of cancer, screening for cancer and what's being done locally in cancer research and is it making a difference?
