Request a Private Conversation

I am a Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor, heart attack survivor and WWII Veteran. I have been married to my best friend Karen for over 35 years and we live each day to its fullest. I enjoy a good laugh and putting a smile on everyones face. I am joined healtheo360 so I could help others going through the journey of cancer or any other health conditions. One good thing about turning 90 years old is I have seen it all. I am here to help!
