Hope is the high; dread is the low; life is the stuff in between! -- Medium
"There is no such thing as destiny, only different choices. Some choices are easy. Some aren't. Those are the important one; the ones that define us as people." Quote from the movie 23. Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You, too? Thought I was the only one.’” (C.S. Lewis) Inspire others by your example.
49 years old, used to consider myself atheletic and am still heavily involved in youth/high school sports, especially baseball and football as a member of the caoching fraternity and in basketball as an armchair coach. I am married to a wonderful women nearly 25 years, and have a son and daughter in college and a daughter and son in high school in the next fall sessions. I am also battling a terminal cancer called multiple myeloma, which is a cancer of the bone marrow. It works on deystroying my immune system and will also cause deterioration and porosity of bone tissue, so it can be a painful experieince. In addition to this, the chemo used to fight it causes nueropathy in the feet, legs, fingers and if it kicks in, can pretty much make most of my body numb. It also triggers additional diabetic systems. It sounds tough, but I do every thing I can to live a "normal" life, including working in the transportation industry as a sales rep and I contiue to coach. God and family are huge for me and I consider my friends part of my family. Thanks for having me...I need to modify my lifestyle as a matter of life so I certinly have motive to do so.
