Random Acts of Kindness September 22, 2017

Another week and more amazing stories of kindness and support. This week I am going to mention what I think is a true cancer miracle. As has been my custom I’d like to just list the top 3 or 4 and please understand that there are many more. Just before meeting with me on Tuesday, […]

Day 3 Post Chemo – The Log Jam

This post isn’t for the faint of heart. If you are easily offended, have a weak stomach, or are generally a political correct snow flake please quit reading now as you are going to be sickened and offended by the post. As I explained yesterday, most of my medical team explained the day 2 and […]

Expectations Day 2 & 3

Oncology has to be a tough field of medicine to practice. Nobody enters the office feeling great about visiting the cancer doctor. Let’s be real most of their patients’ treatments don’t end well, not being negative just real. However every person that is in a sales job should experience an appointment with an Oncologist.

Should I Be Concerned?

I’ve literally been to more doctors in the past 10 days than I have seen in my previous 50 years of being on earth. If I don’t find humor in this fact I think I would curl up in a fetal position and just lay in bed and cry. The other not so funny thing, […]
