Posted by bdboy: Already RICH!
Five years ago...I got a sore throat and went to the doctor for some antibiotics. They didn't seem to work so he sent me to an ENT (ear, nose, throat) specialist. They decided to do a needle biopsy.
Three days later...the Doctor called me with the results...You have cancer and we need to operate right away.
You always think you can prepare yourself for that moment...but I'm here to tell you...you can't!

Before I got off the phone with the doctor...I had to ask...how long do I have? Six months at best. I hung up the phone and just sat there...my mind racing. I left work immediately to go tell my wife.
Not something you convey over the phone. At first I panicked...what bill did I owe, how much life insurance did I have...would it allow my family to continue the lifestyle they had come accustomed to without me being there to guide them.
You just can't imagine what goes through your mind. I went on the computer and searched for the best treatments with the best outcomes...The best I could find for stage 4 cancer was 30%...but hey it was better than the alternative.
Long story short...I got the treatment and here five years later...I beat the odds. What I learned during this whole process...was that the material things weren't important anymore...money went to the very bottom of my list...
.What was important was valuing every single minute with the one's I loved...my family!!!! Unfortunately...it took Cancer for me to realize....I was already rich!!!!!
