The Walk 2015

This post is long overdue because my life is moving along well and its not often I make it back to the blog, which is a great thing. However, I cannot skip sharing about the Oral Cancer Walk. I was honored to speak but I had no idea how difficult it would be to share among my fellow survivors, their caregivers, and my own children. I have no problem speaking to large crowds but this day took me by surprise. As I walked on the stage and looked out to the faces of people who have been affected by Oral Cancer, survivors, warriors in the fight, the caregivers, and the families of those lost, and

Page, your article on your  Cancer journey appeared in the magazine "Conquer" on December 2016, on pages 13-14. Well, my article appeared on pages 25-26 of the same Magazine.

At that time I was a 82 year old man fighting Esophageal Cancer for 8 years. I had lost 90 lbs, and my church was praying that my wife could handle whatever happened. I actually was sent home to finish my life there. For the first 5 years I fought the Cancer by myself, day by day, procedure by procedure. I was so weak after the operation, they could not give me Chemo or Radiation. So 5 years later it came back. But th

(Entry 102) Life is full of incredible opportunities...


Hello again. I know it has been a longtime since I posted an update. Life has been moving forward, as it should be, and I am grateful for every day. Today, I am still cancer free - Praise the Lord! I have an appointment this week and have been going every two months. I have not had a PET scan in over a year because they have not seen any signs of cancer that warranted a scan. All good news!


I started a new position at work back in October. It has been a busy transition time but I do enjoy the role and every day is something new. My work continues to be supportive and I was privileged to h

San Antonio Oral Cancer Walk 2015

Hello friends,

It is that time of year again. I am so excited to participate in my 3rd San Antonio Oral Cancer Walk. As an added bonus, I was asked to be one of the featured speakers. What a great opportunity to share a piece of my story with others and raise awareness. This year Andrew and Gabi have recruited some friends to volunteer and about a dozen teenagers will be joining us. Ayanna will be at a kids service project weekend with our church at the same time as the walk. She wanted to do both but I reminded her there are many more walks to come and I plan to be at them.

My children have

(Entry 106) My 2nd Cancerversary!

August 2, 2014. My 2nd Cancerversary! Yes, I made it. I made it to the two year marker which is incredible news and worth celebrating. My odds of reaching the five year mark have just drastically increased. Those who are familiar with cancer know the five year mark is when you are officially considered cancer free! I am thrilled to be alive and so blessed to have friends, children, and family who love me.

So why did I find myself on an emotional roller coaster for the entire weekend? Because cancer is as much a mental battle as a physical one and it never ends. How can I celebrate where

(Entry 105) Oral Cancer Walk 2014

I am very behind on posting so I am trying to play catch up. Bear with me!  This years walk was wonderful. I met up with survivors from my first walk and it is always great to see the faces of other survivors. I loved having some of my closest friends attend and of course my children.  I will be posting more photos from the walk in the main gallery. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the fund raiser campaign. 

As I walked for the second year I thought about my first walk. I was only 8 months from my final treatment and recovering from another surgery I never menti

(Entry 104) The yearbook photo

I mentioned in a previous post my daughter and I will be in her yearbook because her school leadership group is volunteering at the Walk. With the year coming to a close they requested a high quality photo of us with very little notice. Our schedule was already busy and we needed to get a pic quick. I asked my good friend and photographer, Briana Burns, if she would snap a quick photo of us. With our busy schedules we literally took a few snap shots in her drive way in under twenty minutes. Thankfully the end result (thanks to her talent) turned out great. I also want to give her business reco

(Entry 101) My First Cancerversary


Aug 2, 2012 was my last radiation treatment. I remember it like it was yesterday, but what I love about that day was seeing many good friends and my kids as I finished up. They surprised me and I'll always be so grateful for the outpouring of support I received.




So Aug 2nd, 2013 marks my official one year marker, survivors call these Cancerversaries. This day has brought with it an avalanche of emotions. I'm still dealing with many side effects of Cancer but the most crippling is the fear it will return. I hear the advise, to think positive and don't think about the worst case scenario. That
