"Once you get that cancer diagnosis, it kinda buckles your knees literally and figuratively. And you can read all the books you want on Head and Neck Cancer—or whatever type you’ve got—but my absolute best resource was other people who had already been through it.
I’ll give you a great example: there’s a guy named Gene Monohan who worked for the New York Yankees for probably 35 years as their head trainer. He’s retired now and works for some of the NASCAR teams as a consultant, and he heard what I was going through and called me out of the blue and said, “Hey I had the exact same thing. Here’s what you can expect to go through in your treatment, here’s what I went through, etc.” He’s just one example, but there were 3 or 4 others who reached out to me the same way telling me what I could expect: here’s when you’re gonna feel sick, you’re gonna lose your taste buds, you won’t be able to swallow, etc.
And that’s why I think that what Cancer Spot is doing is just fantastic."
