Christy Holson: My Life as a Cancer Caregiver

We are all pulling for #TeamHolson!

Christy Cochran Holson is from Charlotte, NC. She is the mom of two boys, and she is a part-time college sociology instructor. She is married to a fantastic guy, Buddy, who has been fighting stage 4 colorectal cancer for the past two and half years.

In this episode, Kelin and I talk to Christy about the roller coaster of her life as a cancer caregiver. Christy is a straight shooter. She talks about how horrible it is to face cancer, but also how the journey has brought her even closer to her husband and their boys.

About a year ago, Christy was one of the first caregivers to do a Q&A with me for the Man Up to Cancer website.

It’s so important for us, as the Man Up to Cancer community, to recognize and support our caregivers, to share their stories so that we can have a better understanding of the impact cancer has on them.

About the Podcast

Man Up to Cancer
The show built for men facing cancer, and the people who love us!
I'm your host, Trevor Maxwell. I'm a stage IV colon cancer survivor, and I've got a message for other men: You don't have to go through cancer alone.

Every week on the Man Up to Cancer podcast, you can expect raw, unfiltered conversations about men, cancer, and our experiences. My guests will be other patients, survivors, advocates, and friends from #cancerland.

We'll tackle the topics of grief, pain, and the physical suck-fest of cancer. But .. PLOT TWIST.. we're also going to joke, laugh, and have fun.
