How Life threw me a Curve Ball
by Jim Dorsey
In late March of 2013, I got the shock of my life when I was told I had cancer of the esophagus. I had never been in a hospital, I play sports and never smoked. With my Dad living to 75 and my Mom almost to 80 and both grandfathers living to around 80, there was no way I would not outlive them. What I had off and on was Acid Reflux. It resulted in causing a small tumor and my trouble swallowing. That caused me to get checked in the first place.
Read more about Jim's journey and what he did to stay positive. Hint: He's ready to swing a bat again!
