This is a real-time web journal of my roller coaster adventure with incurable, stage four, malignant, squamous cell carcinoma of my liver, lung and colon. I was initially diagnosed in October of 2006 with an amoeba infection in my liver, due to my somewhat regular travel to Latin America as co-chairman of the Agros Foundation. Within two weeks it was clear that there was much more going on and after further testing it was determined that I had a grapefruit sized tumor in my liver, a walnut sized tumor in my lung, and a third tumor the size of a peanut in my colon.

While incurable cancer can be a terrifying disease, it can also be a gift. One thing we all know is that we will die. In some ways knowing I have cancer enables me to live life with a bit more urgency, living every moment, breathing every breath as a gift. As you will read in the Blog, over time I have come to experience a taste of heaven while at the same time being here in the present. Initially it was a bit unnerving but now I have come to love the experience. I call this Dancing on the Edge of Heaven.
