Movember is a month and a movement dedicated to men's health. In 2013 I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Luckily I was cured and I am cancer free. This is my cancer story with a daily episode in November 2018.
It was important to me to share my personal cancer story throughout November 2018. Thanks to everyone who listened. More information is on www.bernhardkerres.com
Don’t Blame Me!
Five years after my cancer I met someone who once was a close friend. A difficult and emotional conversation.
The New Normal
Many have asked if my life changed after cancer. And yes, it has. My new „normal“ is mich richer and wärmer than the life before.
When Depression Hits
Following the hormone imbalances and in the aftermath of all cancer treatments, depression hit. I found my own way of dealing with it and keeping it at bay.
About Sharing my Cancer Story
It took me a long time and a lot of courage to publicly share my cancer story. I wouldn’t have done so without the encouragement from my daughter. I still fear it might have an impact on future job offers. But I hope that this podcast helps to raise the awareness for health issues and to contribute to us caring more.
A Long Drive
Dealing with a cancer patient in the family isn’t easy. It is challenging for all the people loving and caring for the patient. Still, we need to pull all our energy together, push our fears aside, and give love and compassion.
