Sobriety to the rescue. The docs were all telling me, you need to get Chemo right away and blah blah bl;ah. It was not that I did not listen but, I listened to others in the rooms with some experience with this type of cancer. Get it staged they said so you know where you at with this thing. I did and it was just beginning. I hired a surgeon myself and had the thing cut out with healty margin and that was it. Simple but not easy if I lost my head. Thank God for the program!
