To the Editor:
Inspiring Message – Advice to Young People and Cancer Survivors.
Never Give up! Don't be a quitter for you only defeat yourself.
I just received by first degree black belt in karate at the age of 75 years old. I received my degree at the Convention Center in downtown Minneapolis on March 7.
I am also a cancer survivor, surviving three major cancers: prostate, colon and bladder. I was fortunate to never have had to receive chemo or radiation treatments with any of the cancers. There is life even after being diagnosed with cancer. I am living proof three times over. I have been cancer free for 16 years and am cancer free today.
I hope you will follow my advice as I am living proof today. I am now going for my second degree black belt training at Dojo Karate in Monticello.
