I’m a super survivor
Never give up
I have spent the last three years going through cancer treatment hell and have survived against all odds, thanks to a new treatment approach called immunotherapy.
I haven’t shared much of my journey as it was happening between 2015 and 2017, but now that it’s all over, I have an amazing story to tell.
I’ve had the pleasure of wearing every type of catheter there is. Check out my tips on how to live with them.
Read my Book
I’ve written a book about my whole cancer journey. It’s called BROKEN BOWELS – Tales of a Super Survivor.
You can get it as Paperback and Kindle Edition from Amazon.
I’ve even narrated the whole book for iTunes and Audible (it’s nearly 16 hours long).
I was treated with the same immunotherapy drug that cured President Jimmy Carter. It seems to have worked wonders for the both of us!
