Find Your Pack: Trevor Maxwell on Creating Man Up to Cancer

On today’s show, we welcome Trevor Maxwell. Trevor is a husband, a writer, and a father to two teenage daughters. Two years ago, he was diagnosed with stage four metastatic colon cancer. He is a powerhouse advocate who never envisioned becoming an advocate. But that’s how it works, right? You recognize a need, get angry that it is not being met, and become the accidental advocate. The need Trevor recognized was that, in the economy of cancer support, a dearth of gender-specific support existed for men, and only men. At Stupid Cancer, we did our best to make sure that we had gender-relevant support groups within the broader community of what we have in common. Still, Trevor struck precisely the right chord when he started up a group on Facebook called Man Up to Cancer. So this episode is about men and cancer and finding your tribe.
