Update #3

Do I look sick to you? This photo was taken in Flushing Queens right after my good buddy, Chris Lewis, got stuck in an elevator; immediately followed by his car being towed by the city of New York. Even with cancer, I still sit here contemplating who's day was worse. Fortunately, I am filled with loads of gratitude and a healthy perspective. A lot of that is thanks to your donations. With all of your help, I've been able to pay off numerous debts including: radiation treatments, visiting home nurses, labs, anesthesia, and surgeries. Having access to funding has also helped me pay for meals, airfare, lodging, green juices, talk therapy, prescription drugs, medical supplies, and a whole lot more. I recognize that I have it way easier than many others fighting disease, but the love and understanding of those around me has been paramount in helping me come to terms with what I've been going through. Big shout outs to the friends who've welcomed me into their homes with compassion and dignity. Those people include: Chris Lewis and Beth Summer, Ryan and Annaliese Spilken, and my dear friends Eric Gustafson and Matt Brady. I am happy to report that I have officially passed the 2/3 mark of my chemotherapy treatments! Still have plenty to endure, but the relief I feel in this moment is like nothing else. A very drunk man once told me "make sound decisions and listen to your thoughts." Happy Memorial Day :)
