Today on the Man Up to Cancer Podcast, I'm joined by super advocate DeMetrius Kee from Rancho Cucamonga, California.

When his stepfather was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2017, the ripple effect hit the entire family hard, especially 41-year-old DeMetrius.

"It threw us all off. I spent several years in the health and wellness space and had no idea what prostate cancer was. I immediately started researching," he said.

That launched DeMetrius into a newfound passion for cancer advocacy. More than six years later, he has established a thriving career with cancer non-profits. In the cancer world, sometimes having a strong voice — and the willingness to us it — is exactly what is needed. With his self-described "big mouth," DeMetrius is changing the lives of anyone within earshot.

"Knowing what I know now, in regards to early detection, I encourage everyone," he said. "I know it's difficult, but you've gotta talk about it."

Things you will learn about DeMetrius in this episode:

  • He has 45+ first cousins — and that's just on his mom's side of the family
  • He looks so young, sometimes people think he and his 20-year-old son are brothers
  • He served in the Air Force for eight years… in Nebraska
