The Fiercest Caregiver - Part Two with Jacquie Emory

Today on the Man Up to Cancer Podcast..

Part 2 of our interview with the amazing Jacquie Emory. When we left off last week, Jacquie’s husband Rich, a stage IV colon cancer patient, was undergoing a liver transplant. The surgery was a success, but in some ways, it was just the beginning.

“This is when the hard part begins,” Jacquie says. “This is when the real work starts.”

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.

A shout out to our sponsor - Natera, developers of a new kind of test called Signatera that can detect recurrence as much as a year earlier than imaging. Ask your doctor if Signatera is right for you. Natera.com/signaterapatients

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.
