Christy Cochran Holson is from Charlotte, NC. She is the mom of two boys, and she is a part-time college sociology instructor. She is married to a fantastic guy, Buddy, who has been fighting stage 4 colorectal cancer for the past two and half years.
In this episode, Kelin and I talk to Christy about the roller coaster of her life as a cancer caregiver. Christy is a straight shooter. She talks about how horrible it is to face cancer, but also how the journey has brought her even closer to her husband and their boys.
About a year ago, Christy was one of the first caregivers to do a Q&A with me for the Man Up to Cancer website.
It’s so important for us, as the Man Up to Cancer community, to recognize and support our caregivers, to share their stories so that we can have a better understanding of the impact cancer has on them.
