If you are faced with a life changing diagnosis, Troy Strawhecker has a message for you:
"It's going to be ok."
But he'll tell you: 30 years ago he almost didn't make it.
As a young adult, he was diagnosed and had to go through the treatment of, not one, but two type of cancers. I really wanted to have him share his story. He is such a genuine and good hearted friend. When he looks back at his life, he can be vulnerable to break the stereotype of what surviving cancer does and does not mean. Most of us will never get the chance to be the fly on the wall of people's lives who survive cancer. This story is a great inside look.
What it means to have an open and grateful heart. What it means to be imperfectly perfect every single day of our lives. No matter what hand life deals us.
On this 30th anniversary of "You're Good to Go" announcement from his doctor, let's hear it for all who have walked the walk many don't get the chance to complete.
I hope you enjoy this special story.
