Letting Go and Staying Grateful Led to Cancer Recovery
Musician & Drummer for Infected Mushroom Rogerio Jardim Shares His Cancer Journey
Have you ever gone to a party and got to talking with someone who captivates you with their life story? I recently met new found Glow Circles member Rogerio Jardim, a Brazilian musician who, for the last 10 years, performs as the drummer for electronic music revolutionaries Infected Mushroom, and he blew me away with is story about surviving lymphoma.
I’ve had four super close people in my life get cancer and two survived and two passed away. Not great statistics. I’ve witnessed the challenges up close and understand the fear and anxiety it can create. What fascinates me about Rogerio is how he dealt with these aspects as he faced the potential of dying from his deadly disease.
Check out my video call with him that covers his journey with cancer, the life lessons that came from his experience, and how he feels it transformed him into an even better person today. Its been three years since his last cancer treatment and he is glowing! He is back on the road with Infected Mushroom but is also working on his solo record and drum lesson videos for aspiring drummers.
Rogerio embodies the Glow Living lifestyle which to me means that “I am willing to face life challenges; grow from my experiences and the wisdom of others; and create an empowering life story that inspires and contributes beyond myself.”
