Anahí de Cárdenas in conversation with Jimena Díaz Zapater

Fuck Cancer

Arequipa 2021, 

The life of Anahí de Cárdenas was turned upside down in 2019 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, this Peruvian actor, singer and dancer has undergone a complex and transformational process of healing, undergoing a course of chemotherapy. In 2020 she created the digital festival Fuck Cáncer + Fuck COVID, a free musical event that raised funds to fight cancer and Covid-19. She has recorded this difficult but life-changing time in her book Fuck cancer, about which she will talk in conversation with the journalist Jimena Díaz Zapater.
