My mother called me a thrill seeker as a kid. That continued to be a fair assessment throughout my life, but with unforeseen consequences. For 57 years I managed to cheat death as I endured accidents such as a head-on car collision that catapulted me through two windshields or hitting a telephone pole at 110 MPH on a motorcycle, to name just a couple. But none of these true-life experiences compared to what came after my cancer diagnosis. In this book I use words to paint you alongside as I detail all my incredible life challenges and experiences. Ride along the emotional roller coaster that includes 17 surgeries and the domino effect of events that resulted. After the cancer diagnosis, an internal fight also ensued. It was the mental battle against the shadowy figures on my shoulders who constantly whispered morbid thoughts.


 Insult To Injury PT II


The road had been recently paved with asphalt, so the shoulder was

pretty high with a steep, 4-foot red dirt bank leading to tall, unkempt grass.

My speed pushed me beyond the four-foot bank and the grass line. It was

eerie. The section of the road where I crashed had been viciously cleared of

all life for 30 yards from the road to a tree line where towering oaks and

maples competed with sparse pines. Perhaps someone foretold of a crash

on this part of the road? There was also a huge, gaping sinkhole halfway

between the shoulder of the road and the wood line. As I wickedly

fishtailed, I vividly remember feeling grateful my ride didn’t end in that

gaping sinkhole.

I thought, “Death may be better than any other outcome if the

crash happens here.”
