Bay area man’s cancer podcast goes global

Local News

A Tampa Bay area man with colon cancer decided to start a podcast to help other men in his shoes, but because so many people are touched by cancer, the show is now a global phenomenon.

“It’s my passion,” Lee Silverstein said, pointing out that the podcast is not his primary job.
Since Lee’s wife was his greatest inspiration and champion the podcast is now called, “WE Have Cancer; Our Story, With Lee and Linda Silverstein.”

The podcast no longer focuses solely on men with colon cancer, but reaches out to anyone with cancer and the people who love them.

“I’ve interviewed parents talking about how they talk to their children about their disease. I’ve talked to experts about intimacy and how you navigate that very personal topic, when you’re touched by the disease.  And, we’ve talked about medical marijuana and integrative medicine, massage and the list goes on and on,” said Silverstein.

Quick to point out he is no doctor, Lee Silverstein does hope he can provide people with information they need to navigate what can be a very confusing and lonely arena when it comes to fighting cancer.
