Cancer Update

Back in 2007 life was really, really good. My business was exploding, I had discovered and joined MMC in January. Then in the summer I found that I had prostate cancer. I had robotic surgery to remove my prostate.

The love and encouragement that I received from my new family at MMC was something that I have always treasured and will never forget. I have seen my amazing family do the same for so many others. One of you, Aunty Mistletoe, even walked the Relay for Life for me in 2011. I have been humbled and honored to have you all as my friends.

My last checkup was last May. Because of some issues with that doctor I became discouraged about the medical machinery in general and quit going. After many months of soul searching and online research to find a new doctor, I finally went back a few weeks ago and did my labs. Today I got the news that I am cancer free. Now, no cancer patient ever takes it for granted that the evil monster might not rear its ugly head again, but anytime we can claim months and even weeks of being declared cancer free, believe me, it's a victory! I am now going on 6 years of being cured.

On this occasion I wanted to share the video that Aunty Mistletoe made for me and others during the Relay For Life in 2011. Thank you again for all your support to my MMC family and especially to you Aunty Mistletoe!

So glad Story your doing well. I can't imagine how difficult it must be for people diagnosed with that horrible disease. Your an inspiration to people to show that there is life after Cancer. I'm happy you found so much support here on MMC although for the short time I've been here, I can't say I'm surprised. I don't think you'll find better people anywhere than the folk on here. Best wishes and a happy future to you.
