By way of annual exam, in 2010 I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer. In 2011 I had successful robotic surgery and was headed down the road to recovery. A few months later I was diagnosed with another, unrelated cancer, Multiple Myeloma. I started letting some friends know through email what was going on. With each update, the mailing list grew. My son suggested I create a blog instead of sending out emails, so here we go.
