Five years ago, it was a shocking experience to receive my diagnosis. One never expects to hear the words, “You have cancer.” However, with the excellent care and attention of my surgeon and his staff, I am feeling well after two surgeries and am back to living an almost normal life.
At 72 years old, I have learned to exercise, play golf, and enjoy my family more, even more than I did before my surgery. It is critical to learn to face adversities and move forward with a positive attitude. Science has evolved greatly, and this should give us all great hope that we can live a much longer and more normal life.
