Show Notes: Ep. 5 – Cancer Before 30 with Andrea Malarkey

April 5, 2022


It’s Month 2 of the She Is Kindred podcast and we are opening up our next series–Living in the Tension: Holding Space for Grief and Hope. Britt sits down with her long-time, sister-friend of over 20 years, Andrea Malarkey, who braved one of the toughest challenges anyone can face: cancer.

Andrea Malarkey works for Disney Events in Orlando, Florida, and has supported the She Is Kindred Team since its inception. She believes that connecting with people is one of the most powerful things you can do with your life. Her happy place is the beach, she’s always down for a dance party, and the 90s will forever be her spirit animal. 


  • Raw moments of Andrea’s struggles with maintaining her independence and navigating the challenges of a busy life in her late 20’s all while facing Stage 2 breast cancer.
  • Struggles with maintaining confidence and not allowing this hurdle in life to define who she is as a person. 
  • The timeline from diagnosis until today and how this season of life has taught them both valuable lessons that they will carry with them for years to come. 

“Imperfection can be beautiful.” – Andrea Malarkey

“It has shaped who I am, but it hasn’t defined me” -Andrea Malarkey

“The insecurity of appearing weak was hidden behind my wig” – Andrea Malarkey
