Cancer. It's true. You are never prepared to hear, "It's cancer." Yet there I was on the other end of the phone line with my PCP on a Friday night in late February hearing those exact words. I was grateful for the call; at least I didn't have to continue the agonizing wait all weekend long for test results. What has transpired since has been a blur - times where I could barely keep up and moments where it felt like time stood still.
This is my story of an on-going journey to a hopeful destination. Very quickly I have learned those who have travelled a similar path did so with the unintended benefit of assisting us just starting our own narrative. If my story educates, inspires, motivates those who will follow a similar, yet personally diverse, path then I will have paid it forward as others like CSF and MHP are currently doing for me.
Through it all I have found laughter is what keeps me balanced, hence the title "I Need To Laugh."
I will post updates, express random thoughts, and share lessons I learn along the way. My words may be raw and unfiltered but they will always be authentic.
