Now in its third season, Game On Glio was the first of its kind to create a media platform for telling the stories and journeys of those diagnosed with brain cancers such as Glioblastoma. Expanding on its original platform, this show shines a light on grief and loss, brain cancer education and stories, and provides inspiration, hope, and second chances! Guests include caregivers, scientists, therapists, patients, widows(ers), non-profits, well known personalities, and authors. The mission of this show is to find a way to give a voice to those that need it most, bring education and advocacy to brain cancers, grief and loss, and to remind all of us that second chances do exist. There’s always hope! Host--Shannon (S.M.) Traphagen **Disclaimer-this podcast is not a medical podcast.

At the time of his diagnosis, Chris Baccash had a full time analytics job and spent his weekends racing and training with the Doylestown Bike Works elite cycling team. His accomplishments included the hardest event of the season — the 50-mile Bucks County Classic, in his hometown of Doylestown, PA, with a personal-best time.
Of cycling at the time, Chris says, “When else do you get to ride through a beautiful countryside, side by side with a good friend, and have an uninterrupted conversation for five hours?”
After being diagnosed with brain cancer, his perspective on what was important in life changed, “I knew that my situation was going to take a while to get corrected and I would have a chance to reprioritize,” he said. “It’s rare that we get these opportunities to pause and stop the show. I thought, ‘This is an opportunity to change my life.'"
And that is what he did. Hear Chris's remarkable story and what he is doing today.
