Canadian punk rock queen Bif Naked on battling cancer and the power of emotional support
Bif Naked is known for being tough. She's a powerful, unapologetic songwriter who rocked a generation of Canadians with hits like Tango Shoes and I Love Myself Today. So it was shocking when Naked suddenly became really vulnerable.
More than a decade ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
After multiple rounds of chemotherapy, surgery and one very special clinical trial, Naked is doing well today, but she says the experience changed her forever. Now, she's sharing her story in a new web series about mental health and caregiving, called Cypher.
Cypher is available to watch on the YouTube channel Stories for Caregivers.
