The Cancer Slayer

Welcome to the show everyone! I hope you are all well!
My guest today is a speaker and the author of the CancerslayerBlog and two books, TWICE How I Became A Cancer-Slaying Super Man Before I Turned 21, as well as,  Secrets of the Cancer-Slaying Super Man. His work has also been cited by Newsweek and the New York Times.
At the age of 16, he experienced hip pain as a talented tennis player and student living in the suburbs of Washington, DC. Shortly thereafter, he was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma a rare form of cancer, usually found in teenagers and young adults.
“Benjamin believed that he was no Sick Kid but a super-powered hero who had a unique ability to withstand the toxic chemicals of cancer therapy and preserve his healthy cells while zapping the round-celled malignancy that had invaded his body.”
The aggressive treatment he received at the NIH saved his life and he went on to attend the University of Virginia. Unfortunately, a follow-up CBC revealed that his bone marrow was damaged due to all of the treatments he had received. He had myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a disease near and dear to my heart.
For the second time he took on cancer’s challenge and won.

Welcome to the show everyone! I hope you are all well!

My guest today is a cancer activist & positivity ambassador.
He has taken on the monumental task of strengthening positivity in the world as well as bringing awareness to the global issue of cancer.

He’s a Ewing’s Sarcoma and Acute Myeloid Leukemia survivor.
He was three months shy of his 30th birthday when he was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma a pediatric cancer rarely seen in adults. He had 6 different types of chemotherapy over the course of a year.

He had a surgery that removed the upper half of his humerus bone, replacing it with a bone graft and titanium.
In October of 2012, he got the all clear and at that point asked his future wife to marry him.

Two months before the wedding he was diagnosed with Treatment-Related Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He spent the majority of the next 6 months in a hospital bed. He received a life-saving bone marrow transplant on November 26, 2013.
