 My job is to stay healthy and live healthy 👍

I battle the big C every day I was a smoker so the coughing made me curious and when I got a check up they found that I had 3B lung cancer it was in my lymph nodes around my heart and a tumor the size of a golf ball on my lung we experimented with protons and also the chemo was in remission for over two years and then the lung cancer spread to my brain and I had a tumor in the back of my brain was able to remove it and not long after that another tumor appeared in the front of my brain Battling cancer three times I go to the university of Penn in Philadelphia for chemo once a month and scans every two months this I need to do for the rest of my life this is what is keeping me in remission Every morning I wake up is a blessing God bless God is good no matter what good or bad enjoy your day and just keep doing👍

  • Lovely to meet you DocJoe. I sincerely hope the treatments you have continue to keep the Big C at bay.  I have heard the proton beam has good results.

    Here is an article about proton therapy by the NHS and it's availability.
