Joe Mc Mahon
Hi my name is Joe Mc Mahon. I just turned 38; a birthday I never thought I would see. A few years ago I was told I had non-Hodgkins lymphoma; which required an operation on my neck to remove 5 cancerous lumps followed by chemo and radiation therapy for about a year. I lost over half my body weight and was only given a 20% chance of surviving, but now I have 2 great victories in my life. I found a wonderful wife and beat cancer!

Today I am fortunate to have woken up..... I am alive. I have a precious life, I am not going to waste it.

I will use all of my energy to devolop myself, to expand my heart out to others and to enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.

I will have kind thoughts towards others, I will not get angry or think badly about others.

I will benefit others as much as I can

I will be kind whenever possible.... it is always possible.

And remember .... nothing is impossible i n fact the word itself says.

Paul Little
My name is Paul Little. I was diagnosed with an astrocytoma glioma brain tumor February 15, 1995 at the age of 25. The doctors performed a craniotomy where they partially removed the tumor.

Shortly after recovering from surgery I completed seven weeks of radiation. Statistics said I would live less than five years. The tumor went into remission for ten years.

Four years ago the tumor started reoccurring. In the past four years I have taken the chemotherapy drug Temodar, which I took for twelve months, was off for twelve months, back on for twelve months and was off ten months before undergoing five weeks of Radiation for the second time; which I finished August 16, 2011. It has been 16 YEARS since my diagnosis. I can honestly say "NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE"!!!

Kathleen's story is quite different. She had to fight to get the proper diagnosis, breast cancer; then she had to fight again to beat stage 4 cancer. Kathleen was pro-active in getting her diagnosis which ultimately saved her life.
