Our Cancer Journey Podcast

The Our Cancer Journey Podcast is a place for those impacted by Cancer, their caregivers, their loved ones and also those wishing to prevent illness. 

Our podcast is more than a program about cancer, it's a conversation about life and how we can make ours better.

Together we explore ways we can optimize our lives through the experiences of diagnosis, treatments and beyond into the future of Survivorship. 

We discuss ways to help YOU feel better, live happier, expand your self-empowerment, and enhance your life experience. It is more than a podcast about medicine, or even Cancer. It is about you, the Whole Person, and tips, ideas and strategies to possibly improve your cancer journey and make your life better.

Hosted by unique storyteller and unconventional creator Bruce Watkins, the Our Cancer Journey Podcast provides a unique voice to people in the cancer community that transcends the conventional medical and patient experience-based shows.

Please share this podcast with anyone you feel may benefit from our content, our outlook, our attitude, and especially our passionate advocacy for self-empowerment!

About This Episode:

Over a recent several-week period, Our Cancer Journey Podcast Host Bruce Watkins underwent a handful of routine exams and a few additional tests for some small nominal health issues. The surprising results from one of those tests reported that cancer had returned to Bruce’s life. 

The episode that immediately follows this podcast ( Episode #022 ), contains a live recording of the moments immediately after Bruce learned of one of two potential new cancer diagnoses. In this recording, Bruce discusses his reactions and revelations to the news in a raw and unguarded way never heard on this program before.

This episode, #021, tells of the time leading up to this new cancer diagnosis. This story, however, is not about cancer. In this episode, Bruce shares how he, like many of us, lived a life that was guarded and not open in ways that affected many aspects of his life. He held back information about himself and his personal story, and he resisted asking for help and support from others. At the encouragement of many supporters, and at the urging of his own heart, Bruce finally found the courage to reach for the strength of vulnerability.

In this highly-personal episode, Bruce shares how he finally broke down and asked for help, and the story of the “Push” he received that helped him to risk the change. A thunderstorm rolls in during the recording as if to add emphasis to the story, and to reinforce that a Push can happen for us all.
