Episode 109. "Ultimately, it’s up to you to craft your own life.” ~Pat Wetzel, author, traveler, founder & creator of CancerRoadTrip
To understand Pat’s optimistic attitude toward the personal and the professional, it’s helpful to know how she got here. Diagnosed with supposedly inoperable cancer in 2009, Pat embarked on her treatment journey to discover that “care” rarely addressed experiences beyond the physical.
AntiCancerClub was her antidote, a platform that gave voice to cancer’s unspoken topics (social isolation, fear, spiritual inquiry, and the shifting nature of friendships). Investors followed and the project gained momentum only to suffer devastating legal and financial blows culminating in the loss of her intellectual property and her house.
With no place to call home, Pat set out on a road trip.
The much-needed change of scenery became a perspective-shifting project that eventually morphed into CancerRoadTrip. If she could find healing on the road, why couldn’t she recreate that environment for others?
But nothing is easy. Outside forces have, once again, forced Pat to idle in place, this time in the form of a travel-restricting pandemic.
