Southern Ohio Regional Representative
My wife, Stephanie and I reside near Dayton, Ohio. We have 6 children, 15 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild. I have been involved with Cancer Companions since 2012. Over many years, God has led me to come up long side and try to help others in more ways than I could have ever imagined. In those early years, I didn’t know that my dad and sister would one day pass with Lung cancer from smoking. I also didn’t know that in 2005, I would hear the doctor tell my wife and I, that I had Prostate Cancer and if I didn't have surgery, I wouldn't live to be 65. I don’t know what caused it, whether it was from being exposed to Agent Orange in Viet Nam, some other environmental exposure or it just happened. All I knew for sure was, both of us we're scared and had no idea about the journey ahead. Seeing God in that Journey carried us through…Praise God, I am now a 10 year survivor.
