Black-white. City-country. Woman-man. Grace B. and I are different, and that’s oh so beautiful!

Grace B. Charrier is a cancer patient advocate and mental health advocate, with a platform that is truly on the world stage. 

Grace is of African descent, lives in Brooklyn, NY, and she believes we are all global siblings, no matter what part of the world we come from. She has a background as a mental health advocate, working closely with Member States and top officials at the United Nations. 

In 2016, Grace was diagnosed with Stage III triple-negative breast cancer, and through that experience she has developed a powerful voice in cancer awareness, advocacy, and public policy. Grace hosts a youtube talk show, Cancer Convos with Grace B, and she is the author of a memoir, “Impossicant.”

Today we explore her advocacy work, the stigma of cancer across cultures, and we ask the question: How can we get more men to take control of their health?

“A guy will look out more for what’s happening to the engine in his car, than to what’s happening in his own body," Grace says.

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.
