Meet my dear friend Don Helgeson, a 3-time cancer slayer from Nanaimo, B.C., Canada.

A recently retired Mountie of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Don has survived melanoma, colon cancer, and prostate cancer. He is one of my #LynchSyndrome brothers, and a man of wisdom, compassion, and integrity.

Don spends a lot of his time on a new mission as a patient advocate. He is one of Man Up to Cancer’s Wolfpack Leaders, and is an admin for Tracy Morgan’s PC Tribe. Don is also the author of a memoir, “Prostate Cancer at 51.”

Check out our conversation and see which weapon Don will use during the Zombie Apocalypse. I promise you that it’s the most Canadian answer ever given in the Gauntlet of Random Questions!
