John’s Story – “Living with Cancer”

John's Story

John Wilson writes of his life as a survivor, living with GIST cancer:
“I didn’t like people saying that I was battling with cancer, so I told my family, “When I die, don’t say that dad battled cancer; tell them that I lived with cancer.”
This is my story of how I discovered I had cancer and how I have been living with it for the last 15 years.”Download Living with Cancer [fac_icon icon=”file-pdf-o”]
