My Story

Cancer has no boundaries as I found out last year (2007) that even the strongest can be affected by cancer. Upon learning that I had Hodgkins Lymphoma my family always close to begin with hung even closer together as a family and we all got through a period that changed our lives forever. My pleasant smile and determination to beat this diagnosed disease has inspired all around me. My wife Melissa, my mother Beverly, my mother-law Susan as well as countless others pulled together for almost one year to see that my disease would not better me. To all those that helped make my journey to "cancer free" possible I say thank-you a thousand times! To those battling these nasty diseases I say stick to your beliefs and KEEP your family close by your side and make them apart of your daily life. These diseases can be beat and I am living proof!! And do as your doctor says. And don't ever give up!
