DISCOVERY AND TED KOPPEL DOCUMENT THE EXPERIENCES OF THE CANCER PATIENT WITH KOPPEL ON DISCOVERY: LIVING WITH CANCER AND LIVE TOWN HALL EVENT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 3, 2007
Tune in Sunday, May 6 at 8 PM (ET/PT) to Discovery Channel or Discovery Health for a groundbreaking feature and event focused solely on the lives of cancer patients—from the day-to-day challenges to the emotional ups and downs.
KOPPEL ON DISCOVERY: LIVING WITH CANCER features a series of conversations between Ted Koppel and Koppel Group Executive Producer Leroy Sievers and Seven-Time Tour de France Champion Lance Armstrong, both cancer survivors, in a candid discussion about living with cancer. Koppel follows Sievers for 15 months as he deals with diagnosis, treatment, and the everyday grind of living with the disease.
Due to relevance and impact of this subject, Discovery and Discovery Health will cut to a live Town Hall discussion throughout the program broadcast in order expand the dialogue. This event will be moderated by Koppel and will feature a panel of newsmakers, including Elizabeth Edwards, Armstrong, and Sievers. Among those in attendance will be patient representatives from Breastcancer.org. For more information please go to www.discovery.com/koppel.
In conjunction with KOPPEL ON DISCOVERY: LIVING WITH CANCER, Discovery is giving all those touched by cancer the opportunity to express their personal experiences through artistic expression via the interactive Cancer Collage.
