The C Word

PRESS RELEASE · Brisbane City QLD, Australia ·

Meet Lee, your everyday, early 40's, Aussie bloke. He loves footy, loves keeping fit, and has spent most of the last 12 years coaching AFL football teams.

He has a wife, two young boys, and a zest for life. Just 6 weeks ago, he was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer.

The new podcast is hosted by Lee Whitehorn and his brother Luke Evans who is no stranger to podcasting with his own podcast ‘Itch’ also on the Podshape network. In this podcast Lee wants to help anyone dealing with uncertainty.

The C Word is a snapshot of Lee’s journey from day one. His aim is to use his own coaching skills to tackle the unknowns, share what he learns and offer new perspectives. Lee wants to focus on helping people, as well as himself, to deal with life’s challenges no matter what’s thrown your way.

Jay Walkerden Head Shaper said – When I sat down with Lee, his first words to me were “I’m so glad you didn’t ask me how I’m doing, I have brain cancer how do you think I’m doing?” I love the way Lee looks at his life and his diagnosis, he’s not poor me, he actually is more like “Ok cool I’ve got this this thing, what do I need to do to beat it?” He has a very strong mindset and I’m so pleased we could help to share his story. Lee said of his podcast project with Podshape - It wasn’t until I sat with Jay that I felt comfortable with this process and what it can offer to others. Sharing stories and connecting is what we do best as humans and Jay and the Podshape team have certainly made me feel positive about the impact this podcast can have. I am now really excited about what we can achieve moving forward.

So far Lee has two rules - don’t cry in front of him and please don’t mention The C word.
