Life-Changing Events and Starting His Journey

Then, after experiencing several life-changing events, including surviving a Stage-3 Cancer diagnosis in 2017, Bruce felt a calling to return to his creative roots. He gave up his conventional life, left his home, gave away most of his possessions, and began traveling, writing, and sharing stories of beauty, human connection, and giving back.

Bruce has always had a hand in helping others, supporting charity work, and volunteering. In the years leading up to 2017, his attachment to living a conventional life wained as the calling to connect with others and to be of service grew.

He increased his giving activities by participating in groups from world-scale non-profits such as the American Red Cross (where he served for 4 years on the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Regional Board for the charity), to smaller specialized groups and charities that serve a variety of people in need (such as Cancer patient support groups, and International cross-cultural volunteerism organizations).

Bruce’s time of untethered traveling was both healing and enlightening. Throughout his unique journey, he has encountered countless people of all walks of life that openly gave of themselves to help others. After several years on the road, he began to work on one of his many giving back dreams: Creating a place where people impacted by cancer, those who support them, and anyone wishing to prevent illness, can join and explore new ways to empower themselves and optimize their lives.

In the Fall of 2020, the new OUR CANCER JOURNEY PODCAST with Bruce Watkins podcast show published its first episode.

Today, Bruce continues to dedicate his time to traveling, writing, creating media, promoting (and personally participates in) philanthropic, humanitarian, and supportive organizations, and simply giving back to others.
