Biography:
I'm 51 years old and married to my soulmate, Amy, who is also a saint. We have three amazing children. I was diagnosed with a pleomorphic sacral sarcoma in '07. I was given a terminal diagnosis. in 01/08, I had a rare sacral amputation to remove my sacrum which had the tumor attached to it. The en bloc resection performed by world renowned spinal surgeon Ziya Gokaslan took two operations back to back, 16 hours each. I was in the hospital two months and confined to a bed. The plastic surgeon accidentally perforated my bowel without knowing and that complicated matters greatly. I lost my S2 nerves down. I have to intermittently cath and I have a colostomy. I feel lucky. I try and live life to the fullest and I enjoy my life, mostly because of the wonderful family I have.
