Host Bios



Hello! My name is Lex, I am one of the co-hosts of the Radically Disfigured Podcast. I am 28 years old, and I have a recently acquired cancer related facial disfigurement. I am also a Registered Nurse, not currently practicing due to disability, though I was previously working in oncology care. I am passionate about nursing, and I also like to write poetry. I have been writing poetry about my experiences with cancer and FD, and I hope to write more publicly about critically analyzing topics related to both cancer and FD.
