Simon Tryzna, CFA – Navigating a Parent’s Cancer Diagnosis

Simon Tryzna

Simon Tryzna, CFA is a Chief Investment Officer and Financial Planner in California.

He discusses what it was like when his dad was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, how his family divided household responsibilities, and what it was like trying to process everything during a pandemic.

I appreciated and am grateful for how Simon opened up about his own emotions, reflecting back on the experience, and what lessons he is taking away from it to implement in his professional life with clients.

One of my favorite quotes from the discussion is:

“The emotions I was feeling I couldn’t quite convey to her…It was definitely more of a we are in this fight. What do we need to do? What am I responsible for?”
