I am a 63-year-old grandfather living in Jacksonville, Florida. I am also a husband to my wife Marjie . . . a father to Sean and Shannan . . .  a grandfather to Lainey . . . a photographer . . . a diver . . . a cancer survivor . . . a respiratory therapist  . . . a blues music lover . . . retired medical sales professional and a traveler on a journey looking for a dietary cure for liver cancer.

Currently I am retired due to medical reasons. I have been a respiratory therapist for over 30 years.  I started many years ago working in clinical medicine and from there, moved to teaching, respiratory therapists. Sometime later, after the death of my mother. I completed my bachelor's degree in business and began a journey down another road which involved medical sales. I did this for many years until I was forced to retire for medical reasons. I have since become Certified as a Diving Instructor and I now teach people how to become Scuba Divers [click the link (redwhiteandbluescuba.com)].

While working in clinical medicine I contracted hepatitis C and eventually that developed into liver cancer. During this same time, I was also diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in my neck. I am a six year survivor of neck cancer.

The reason for this blog is to impart information that I picked up during my diagnosis and treatment for cancer. It is somewhat of an ongoing process. Since I'm still doing many of the things that I started doing during the rehabilitation process from the cancer in my neck. While I was contemplating writing this information, I also developed cancer in my liver. I am 3 years out form that diagnosis and things are going well. I embarked on a Whole Food Plant Based Diet in order to mitigate the cancer outside of what the medical community offered. I was cured of the hepatitis and all of may diagnostic tests have been negative for the past 3 years. I hope that the information contained in this Blog is helpful to other individuals as well. (This blog is meant to share and inspire, and to teach me more about my own journey. It is not intended to be used as medical advice.)
