On this episode, we talk about his journey with cancer and why he founded this very important company, Man Up to Cancer, which recently started a support group at the Dempsey Center! This was honestly one of the most touching shows I have done. I hope you will take the time to listen and help us spread the word about Trevor and his mission!
