My husband is a 24-Year, 2-Time Cancer Survivor. His first cancer, 24 years ago, was a terminal stage non-Hodgkins lymphoma that fractured 2 vertebrae in his spine before spreading to his chest and spleen. He had an aggressive chemotherapy and radiation therapy. His second cancer diagnosed 6 months ago is a bone marrow cancer for which he is currently undergoing 6 months of chemotherapy. Throughout both cancers he has been an inspiration to so many people through his positive mental attitude, which is especially noteworthy since his current cancer is incurable. He counsels current cancer patients to help them get through what he has already experienced. He always has a smile on his face. He proudly wears his t-shirts emblazoned with "I'm a cancer survivor" as he hopes to let people know there is life with, and after, cancer. He believes that since he has been given the ultimate second chance, a second chance at life, his responsibility is to give something back so he can help others. While fighting his second cancer he adopted the following phrase: "Bring it on cancer, I am the David to your Goliath." In addition, his approach to life is summed up in the following words that appear on every email he sends: "Cancer may have robbed me of that blissful ignorance that once led me to believe that tomorrow stretched forever. In exchange I've been granted the wisdom to see each today as something special, a gift to be used wisely and fully. Nothing can take that away." My husband, is truly a salute to life.
