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

There are many contributors in the world of biological / medical research looking for more effective treatments and potential cures for disease. One important group of those contributors is virtually unknown in the public and often under-recognized in medicine and the media. In this first installment of a 2-Part interview, Host Bruce Watkins is joined by Data Scientist and Researcher Prof. Levi Waldron.  

Their discussion about the field of “Biostatistics” provides eye-opening information. They explore how Data Scientists like Dr. Levi, with the aid of futuristic computing technologies, partner with hands-on researchers in laboratories around the world to find critical information often buried in a sea of varying, unclear and sometimes conflicting laboratory results. These hidden tidbits of data could change the course of future medical treatments, our own personal health outcomes, and possibly our very lives.

And, while the work of Data Research Scientists is fascinating, Dr. Levi’s personal story is just as compelling. After years of compiling and analyzing countless thousands of Head and Neck cancer patient records for analysis, one day Dr. Levi learned that he too was diagnosed with that very disease. Bruce and Dr. Levi candidly discuss what it was like for an expert like Dr. Levi, who build highly-accurate mathematical predictions for cancer patients’ survival, would one day realize that he could become one of the statistics of his own life and death projections.

Be sure to listen to the upcoming Part-2 of the interview with Prof. Waldron as he and Bruce dive deeper into how Dr. Levi turned his cancer diagnosis into a motivation for patient advocacy, how he set the example by personally sharing his own health data, and how he continues to help others share their own cancer stories.
