As I share my story, I have been fortunate to meet other survivors who have battled oral cancer. Each person I have met offers Words of Wisdom that will provide strength to those currently fighting to survive and/or struggling with their diagnosis.

Bill G. from Connecticut

Bill shared the following with me on Facebook: 

"Pet scan news today my friend. There's another stage 4 throat cancer survivor in the house! I told my docs about you today and all you are doing and I offered to do anything I can to support the docs and hospital that saved my life. Gave out lots of hugs today. Tracked down all of my docs, nurses and radiation techs. I asked the techs how often they see a stage 4 get clean results. I was shocked to hear they rarely hear from patients. Blew me away. How do you not thank the people that saved your life?"
