OK, here goes. My boss, (who’s also a good friend) encouraged me to tell my “story” on the radio. I did on the air this morning, and now I’m doing so here.

Before Thanksgiving I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I’M GONNA BE FINE! As I told my kids, I’ll still walk my daughter down the aisle-someday, and I’ll play many many more rounds of golf with my son!
I won’t be on the air Friday, that’s when I’m having the surgery. BUT, the radio station put a microphone in my house! I’ll be broadcasting from home next week and until I can come back to the studio for work!
