Cape Elizabeth’s Trevor Maxwell will discuss his recently released book “Open Heart, Warrior Spirit: A Man’s Guide to Living With Cancer” on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. at our church. The event is free and open to the public.
Trevor, 45, has been living with stage IV colon cancer since March of 2018. He has undergone five surgeries, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and a clinical trial. He lives in Cape with his wife and two-teen-age daughters.
In his book, Trevor explains why men go into their man caves when facing a cancer diagnosis, provides a roadmap for surviving and thriving through treatment, and tells the story of one patient’s quest to create a wolf pack for guys living with cancer.
Trevor founded Man Up to Cancer in March 2020 as a purpose-driven company and support community for men impacted with cancer. He has a background in journalism, communications, and public relations.
As a journalist, he has been the recipient of more than 20 state, regional, and national writing awards. As a patient leader, he has received the Annette Cook Cancer Warrior Award presented by the Wunderglo Foundation and the Amanda Dempsey Award presented by the Dempsey Center.
Please join us for what will be an inspiring, first-person talk.
