Imagine you only have an 8% chance of being alive in 3 years. Think about it: an 8% chance — 3 short years from now.
What would you do? Would you crumple under the weight of knowing death might soon be at your doorstep? Or would you stand up and make a difference starting today?
Martin Howey is a man on a mission. You see — Martin has stage IV colon cancer. And yes — his survival rate statistically is not good. According to WebMD; the five-year survival rate for stage IV colon cancer is only 8%. Martin was diagnosed 2 years ago — so he is staring down the 8% survival rate in 3 years.
Even more alarming is the revelation doctors uncovered two weeks ago of Martin also having another form of cancer called Non-Hodgkin’s Follicular Lymphoma. Radiation treatments start next week.
But is Martin sulking in the back corner of his bedroom as his possible remaining years pass him by?
