Cancer Came A Knockin’

I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the news I got a couple weeks ago on my birthday. The doctor told me I have cancer, oropharyngeal cancer caused by HPV.

The teeth have to go because the bone will be to brittle to support them.

Bummer is I never needed doctors so I didn’t carry insurance. I’m looking into some sort of insurance but for now I’m a cash customer at the doctors.

I started a GiveSendGo campaign back when cancer was a possibility, now I guess it’s time to put it out there to the world. It didn’t make sense when I was in denial. Here’s the link:

I humbly ask you share as you see fit, thanks so much!!
