Almost 5 years

5 years ago today I started getting prep for a lung transplant. I wasn't expecting the call I was preparing for a 5K in San Francisco that was coming up and helping my other BAD lung homies. I got the call while eating dinner at the Spa. Getting the call while already at the Spa was not good because it was laundry night (3 wks worth of clothes built up) and apartment clean-up night too. My wife and mom and friends got to experience my bachelors pad it was a throw back to my undergrad days and time in Rhode Island, No VA, and FTW.... basically my carefree days.

Anyway the five year mark starts now b/c they prepped me starting at about 5pm the surgery started around midnight and went into the early morn hours the next day. I will post more Tuesday in keeping with the spirit of the long life saving procedure I underwent.

  3. Thanks for sharing your story – I really touched me! You can also find a lot of lung cancer stories and photos of people who have fought the disease here on a site called hello have you heard, about lung cancer: http://www.hellohaveyouheard.com/lung-cancer-awareness-wall/ The stories of survival are so inspiring to read, and give me a lot of hope that one day, we’ll really be able to beat lung cancer.

  5. I am 29 years old and have been diagnosed with breast cancer, ease of treatment and a similar story, except for my first acceptance as a rejection of herbal medicine. I was not part of the Perseid movement and did not really build relationships with any of them, I just believed in their operation. I say this because it was during the use of Dr. Itua herbal medicine that I now attest that herbal medicine is real, the phytotherapy Dr. Itua heal my breast cancer which I suffered for 2 years. Dr. Itua herbal medicine is made of natural herbs, with no side effects, and easy to drink. If you have the same breast cancer or any type of human illness, including HIV / AIDS, herpes cancer, bladder cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, kidney cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, skin cancer and skin cancer. , LEUKEMIA, VIRUSES, HEPATITIS, INFERTILITY WOMEN / MAN, LOT OF LOVE, LOTTERY.
