Surviving Cancer Special Presentation Podcast
On Wednesday October 4, 2017, NSR Media will present “Surviving Cancer” at 7pm ET.
This special podcast will be hosted by Barry Davis and Matt McFarland, who host the Outta the Park podcast.. This special will focus on those who have personally survived cancer and families that have had to survive after seeing a loved one battle this terrible disease.
The Canadian Cancer Society reports that nearly 1 of 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer. The good news is is that half of all cancers can be prevented. As for those who have been diagnosed, the survival rate is now 60%. That’s up from 25% in the 1940’s.
This special presentation will feature the following guests.
Jerry Howarth: Toronto Blue Jays radio play by play voice. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer last winter. He managed to beat it, and was in the booth opening day.
Mike Richards: Longtime radio personality and host of Raw Mike Richards. Was diagnosed with rectal cancer in 2015 and is now in remission.
Joe Bowen: Toronto Maple Leafs play by play voice was told his son had leukemia at the age of 1. He spent years receiving treatment, and is now 26, and completely healthy.
Joe Siddall: Blue Jays radio voice: Joe’s story is quite different, and survival is something he and his family are trying to do. In February 2014, Joe’s 14 year old son Kevin passed away after being diagnosed just a few months earlier. It’s taken years, and the battle still continues, but Joe will share with us, how a family survives after losing a child
Dr Shady Ashamalla: surgical oncologist at Sunnybrook’s Odette Cancer Centre. He has been appointed to the University of Toronto as an Assistant Professor and surgeon educator, with academic interests in surgical simulation and knowledge translation.
