#024 – Update & Leaving for Adventure During Cancer – Bruce Watkins

About This Episode:

In the early fall of 2022, after many scans and multiple opinions from healthcare providers, Bruce’s latest cancer diagnosis was confirmed, but with ambiguity that would not be resolved in the near future. When a definitive medical plan of action that included regularly scheduled rotating exams and scans was finally laid out by his doctors, Bruce announced his own definitive plan of action. He was leaving the country.

Just a few days after his final defining diagnosis and assessment, Bruce boarded a plane for Asia. He stepped away from the podcast for a period of time to reflect and assess where he wanted to be in what he wanted his life to look like.

Bruce followed his heart and the call of adventure to the country of Thailand where he spent over a month touring this magical country, and now is spending time in Thailand’s Northern regions, considered the spiritual center of Thai culture.

There will be many more stories your intrepid show Host will share in the future, as well as new episodes of the Our Cancer Journey Podcast. In the meantime, Bruce would like to thank everybody for holding space for him, the loving and supportive comments he’s received in the last many months, and the understanding and acceptance from his listeners, readers, and loved ones that know one thing above all when it comes to their friend. For Bruce, There is No Time Like the Present to respond to the Call to Adventure.
