Surviving Through Music

Diagnosed at age 27, Jason Beaulieu of Millbury, Mass., has been fighting metastatic papillary thyroid cancer for more than three years.

Music has kept him going.

Jason has been playing music in some form or another for most of his life. But he didn’t sing in front of a live audience until after his cancer diagnosis and first surgery (which was 21 hours!).

Motivated by his friend Camden and his life coach Derek, Jason worked through his apprehensions, and he and has emerged as a musical artist to watch. 

Last fall, he was invited to Los Angeles to record his song, “What’s Next?”, with a professional band and producers. He was selected for this honor by Cancer Can Rock, a non-profit organization founded by Jim Ebert, who is a multi-platinum record producer and a cancer survivor. The foundation serves musicians facing aggressive cancer.

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.
