The Fiercest Caregiver: Jacquie Emory doesn’t accept the BS of cancer care, and neither should you.

Jacquie Emory is a fierce and loving caregiver to her husband Rich, who was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer in the fall of 2020. She led the charge to find him a donor for his life-saving liver transplant in November of last year.

Liver transplant is still only occasionally used for colorectal cancer patients with metastatic disease, for several reasons. But more patients than ever are exploring this option, and many are qualifying for the procedure. For those who fit the criteria, the transplant can be the best chance of extending life, and possibly a cure.

Everyone who knows Jacquie knows she wears her heart on her sleeve. She tells it like it is, without sugar coating. She is quick to laugh, cry, and to share her heart with us in cancerland.

Over the past two years she has had a front row seat to the best of cancer care in America, and sometimes the worst. Jacquie is the definition of a caregiver advocate.

Check out this two-part interview to find out why.

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.
