Man Up to Cancer inspires men to connect and avoid isolation during our cancer journeys. Founded in 2020 by stage IV colon cancer survivor Trevor Maxwell, Man Up to Cancer is a purpose-driven company and online community. We offer a podcast, website, social media channels, a Facebook group with more than 1,700 men impacted by cancer, and an annual gathering for members. Man Up to Cancer also operates a Chemo Backpack program, sending backpacks filled with practical items to men going through chemotherapy.

When faced with cancer, women tend to “reach out,” and men tend to “check out.” This leads men down the path toward mental health problems, strained relationships, and poor medical outcomes. It’s time for a new path.

We are changing what it means to “Man Up” in the face of cancer. It’s not just about being tough. It means having the courage to accept help, and knowing we are smarter and stronger as a pack than we are as lone wolves.
