Cancer Pushed This Canadian Mountie Toward A New Mission

Meet my dear friend Don Helgeson, a 3-time cancer slayer from Nanaimo, B.C., Canada.

A recently retired Mountie of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Don has survived melanoma, colon cancer, and prostate cancer. He is one of my #LynchSyndrome brothers, and a man of wisdom, compassion, and integrity.

Don spends a lot of his time on a new mission as a patient advocate. He is one of Man Up to Cancer’s Wolfpack Leaders, and is an admin for Tracy Morgan’s PC Tribe. Don is also the author of a memoir, “Prostate Cancer at 51.”

Check out our conversation and see which weapon Don will use during the Zombie Apocalypse. I promise you that it’s the most Canadian answer ever given in the Gauntlet of Random Questions!

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.
