HEALED - Living In The Now!

Pat Croce's weekly American Cancer Society Healed Gathering.

A powerful hour of strength, connections, and living in the now, with stories shared by two men tied together through the healing powers of fly-fishing.

The first guest was Stan Golub, executive director of Reel Recovery, a support group for men facing cancer that introduces them to the recovery process through fly fishing.

Pat also chatted with Matthew Parker, a two-time male breast cancer survivor who has been a guest of Reel Recovery. Together, Stan and Matt shared their thoughts on the gift of brotherhood and lifelong connection developed through the beauty of nature.

As a male breast cancer survivor, Matt also shares why he picked a hammer as his cancer fighting symbol, which he felt was better for him than the more common pink ribbon. When his fence fell down, he grabbed a hammer and built it back up. When life knocks you down, grab a hammer and get back up.
