Trevor Maxwell is a writer, speaker, and community builder with a background in newspaper journalism and public relations. He also founded Man Up to Cancer, which is a helpful and headstrong community built to inspire men — and the people who love them — to connect and avoid isolation throughout their cancer journeys.

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!
