Episode 143: Jay Perry: Journeying Through Cancer

Transcript for EP #143: Jay Perry: Journeying Through Cancer.  Canadian photographer Jay Perry was thirty-one years old when his father was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Jay’s business was just taking off, with a portfolio that included artists Snoop Dogg, Usher and Gwen Stefani, but he decided to stop working and move in with his parents to help care for and spend time with his dad. In this interview he talks about the experience, chronicled in his book, “My Dad Got Sick: Love and Insights From a Caregiver’s Unexpected Journey Through Cancer.” From why it was all worth it to his anxiety about being in debt and why he made himself vulnerable by sharing his cancer journey with his dad on social media, Jay's lessons are invaluable.
