I was diagnosed with lung cancer on Nov. 16, 2012 and I was devastated as I was a healthy 55 year old health teacher and basketball coach who exercised all the time. I have applied my coaching experience to coping with my cancer - dealing with frustration, adversity, emotions, staying positive no matter what and getting support from friends, family and former players. I just finished a book that I wrote called Coaching or Cancer "it's all about the team". I have spoken to Relay for Life and Coaches vs. Cancer. I want to be healthy again, but have accepted what I have and I think I am a better person because of it. My faith is stronger than ever and I know God has my back no matter what.
