Bill Doyle always knew he wanted to be on the radio. As one half of the Deminski & Doyle talk radio show on New Jersey 101.5, life was good for Bill until he was diagnosed with bladder cancer at 52. After surgery and several rounds of chemotherapy, Bill is back on the airwaves, thanks in part to the support of his family and the countless 101.5 listeners who have offered words of support during his cancer journey.

"Two dates are seared into my memory. On November 30, 2015, my wife and I were attending a funeral for a very dear friend, who had died after a long ordeal with kidney cancer. After the viewing I used the restroom and I noticed something unusual – blood in my urine. Obviously concerned, I called my urologist in the car on the way to the cemetery. He recommended I come in right away for an exam. On January 7, 2016, after weeks of tests and exams, the suspicion was confirmed: I had bladder cancer."
