Shownotes

Today's episode is an update on my personal cancer journey.

I'm getting ready for major abdominal surgery #4 in the past 3 and a half years. I'll be going to Massachusetts General Hospital. A surgeon there will open me up and take out several small tumors from my abdomen. I may also lose a section of my stomach, because the tumors have been hanging out for quite some time right up against it.

I talk about my emotions around the surgery, and give thanks to many of the people who have played such important roles in getting me to this point.

After my update, I'm adding in the pilot episode of the podcast. We've had a lot of new people join the Man Up to Cancer community recently, and I hope they get a chance to check out this pilot.
