Cancer Sucks!

Back in November 2020, I woke up with double vision.

Covid-19 had all but destroyed my small business of 30 years, and being 66 years of age, I was looking at possible retirement anyway. Maybe convert to full-time singing in our Blues Band.

In a nutshell, I was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal carcinoma and started out on 3 months of daily treatments, while staying in Toronto. Don’t get me wrong, Princess Margaret is a terrific Cancer facility, but it seemed like months (oh ya, I guess it was). Last week, I just had my 3 month MRI scan and apparently they got all the affliction in my throat.

In these times of bad news, THIS was wonderful. Now we continue with recovery and hopes for a clean check in another 3 months time.

Thanks to my Cancer Team, Dr. John Waldron, Nurse Claire, and to the surgeon that gave me ‘Hope’, Dr. Patrick Gullane.
