Personal Background

I was diagnosed with a rare and typically terminal cancer called Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor-sarcoma (DSRCT), in the late Fall of 2009. I went through the most powerful kind of chemo regimen you can go through (it worked); had surgery in May 2010; and finished my chemo at the end of June 2010. By God’s grace they were able to get all of the cancer (which is just a plain ole’ miracle if you understand the kind of cancer I had!), and I have been cancer free since May 6th, 2010. If you would like to talk with me more about this, email me, and I would be happy to go deeper with you.
