This week on the CURE Talks Cancer podcast, we spoke with voice actor Rob Paulsen, who was diagnosed with stage 3 metastatic squamous cell carcinoma in 2016, about how his experience helped him find a reason to smile, even when times get tough.

Known for his roles on animated series like Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, voice actor Rob Paulsen has made a living with his voice for more than three decades. But he wasn’t about to let stage 3 metastatic squamous cell carcinoma in his throat stop him from bringing happiness to people of all ages with his portrayal of characters like Yakko, Pinky, and Donatello.

This week on the CURE Talks Cancer podcast, we spoke with Paulsen about how he’s stepping into his new role as the 2020 Head and Neck Cancer Alliance celebrity spokesperson with the same enthusiasm that has made him a voice acting legend in his own time.

He plans to raise awareness about the disease by sharing how his experience helped him find a reason to smile, even when times get tough.
