Movember is a month and a movement dedicated to men's health. In 2013 I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Luckily I was cured and I am cancer free. This is my cancer story with a daily episode in November 2018.
It took me a long time and a lot of courage to publicly share my cancer story. I wouldn’t have done so without the encouragement from my daughter. I still fear it might have an impact on future job offers. But I hope that this podcast helps to raise the awareness for health issues and to contribute to us caring more.
Dealing with a cancer patient in the family isn’t easy. It is challenging for all the people loving and caring for the patient. Still, we need to pull all our energy together, push our fears aside, and give love and compassion.
Three months before being diagnosed with cancer I founded HELLO STAGE, the classical music community. What do you do as a founder and entrepreneur when being hit by a severe illness? Luckily I had an amazing friend and a great team.
Cancer became personal to me a few month before my diagnosis. I spoke at a TEDx conference and there was Susi speaking about her cancer story. She became a hero for me. And still is. Look up www.fick-dich.at
