Patrick Dempsey is all heart, and I've got proof

Much of the world knows Patrick Dempsey for his iconic roles in TV and film, in what has been a truly exceptional career. I know him for something different. 

To me, he is a real life hero who has made life better for cancer patients and their families, including me and my family.

In 2008, Patrick founded the Dempsey Center here in our home state of Maine. 

The Dempsey Center provides services, classes, and workshops that improve the quality of life for people impacted by cancer. 

This includes counseling, support groups, nutrition and fitness classes, massage, reiki, acupuncture, and more. All provided at no cost to clients.

In a wide-ranging interview, Kelin and I talk to Patrick about the Dempsey Center's past, present, and future. We also talk about Patrick's career, his upcoming movies, and why he decided to return for a guest run as McDreamy, Dr. Derek Shepherd, on Grey's anatomy.

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.
