Jason Pickel is a dad on a mission to spread awareness around the topic that isn't often discussed if you aren't part of the community. And that topic is childhood cancer. After seeing this interview I believe that we all will have a different perspective as he shares the reality of what it's really like to have a child with cancer.
- The Beauty Within the Struggle
- How to Raise the Awareness Around Childhood Cancer
- Forming a Community Around Your Story
"CancerDad Podcast is a show that will bring the listeners into the world of childhood cancer. It's safe to say that most know about childhood cancer, but through our story, and other family's stories, our hope is that everyone sees the reality of what it's really like to have a child with cancer. We never thought our family would be affected by childhood cancer either, but yet here we are, making a podcast about it." - via Cancerdadpodcast.com

Typical family man, married to an amazing woman, and father to four incredible kids. My family’s world was turned upside down in 2013, when our 3 year old son was diagnosed with brain cancer. Two years later he beat it, only to be diagnosed with Leukemia, and he’s been fighting with us by his side, ever since.
