Show Notes:

My up-close and personal conversation with physical therapist and prostate cancer patient Lee Baker was certainly insightful.

Baker, who received his diagnosis on Valentine’s Day, clearly recalls turning to his wife who was present with him in that moment with a feeling of  “getting kicked in the gut,” he says.

“Rise up and let’s seize the day,” Lee recalls saying. “Let’s go out to eat like we had planned. And let’s enjoy our marriage.”

The overarching theme of this conversation explores the idea of making every day count while being on a cancer journey. Lee says today he strives “to seize each moment and realize that I have this gift of time and it’s limited and what am I going to do with it?”

Press play now to hear the inspiration from the heart of a man who refused to allow cancer to rob him of moments in his life.


  • “We’re just going to look at each other and love up on each other.”
  • “[Having prostate cancer] made me feel so inadequate at times.”
  • “There’s just lots of opportunities in the midst of the struggles that are beautiful and funny and joyous as well as hard.”
