One Year Bout With Cancer

Frank Macinsky is a young, healthy, and athletic community leader in Pittsburgh... who was diagnosed with cancer one year ago. This is the story of a guy who was both one of the luckiest and unluckiest 25 year olds in the entire country.

This story has nothing to do with haunted houses, but it has everything to do with friendship, positivity, and a truly life-changing experience. Clowns and zombies are not nearly as scary as chemo and mortality, but this story does have a happy ending.

Frank joins Laura Kelly and Margee Kerr for a look back at his "one year bout with cancer" in this episode of the ScareHouse podcast.

Frank Macinsky is the Director of Marketing for Thread, transforming waste in desperately poor countries into the most innovative products possible. For more information visit www.threadinternational.com.
