Biography

Diagnosed on Feb. 1, 2008, went through usual Nigro protocol from Feb. 25 through Apr. 30th. Suffered pulmonary emboli, multiple large clots in both lungs, on Mar. 30th at the end of my second round of chemo. Clots originated in my port. Had to take a three week break from radiation because of the PE, low white blood count and blisters and infection from radiation burns. I'm 58 now, 54 at time of treatment, married with 3 cats and 2 horses. Had to retire from my Network and System Administrator job. I've spent the last 3 1/2 years fighting recurring cellulitis infections caused by radiation damage. I've made a career out of getting well.
