It was two years ago today that I was diagnosed with stage four throat cancer. On that day, two doctors told me that if I didn't get a morbid operation, which would remove everything in my throat, I'd be dead within a year. I'll say it again: Take charge of your medical path. Be pro-active. I'm alive today, tumor- and cancer-free, because I took charge of my path. I can eat and swallow and talk because I took charge of my path.
