Sickboy

Join hosts Jeremie, Brian, and Taylor as they hangout and have an unapologetic, unpolished and unfiltered discussion about what it's like to live life with a disease, in the hopes of finding humour in an otherwise taboo and sometimes dark subject.

Josh Cassidy is a world record holding Wheelchair racer. In 2010, Cassidy won the London Marathon. Oh, but here's the thing, he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer in the spine and abdomen weeks after birth. He was given a very low chance of survival but was declared cancer-free after 5 years of remission, but it left his legs partially paralyzed. Did that shit stop him? Nah. Broke the world record for the Boston marathon, a Paralympic podium contender, can do chin-ups while strapped into a wheelchair?!? This week: Our live recording from Movember house in Toronto. We dive into everything from Memories as a one year old, things that you just NEVER say to someone in a wheelchair, the origin of the word handicap and the fact that a man who is partially paralyzed has larger thighs than Jeremie.
