Grit Story: John W. from Calgary


I was self diagnosed with two types cancers that were later confirmed. With testicular cancer, the doctors wanted me in the hospital right away to prevent it from spreading. This fight was going to be a tough one, like John Wayne in one of his classic fight scenes. With stage 3 lymphoma, the doctor wanted me to start chemotherapy right away. The John Wayne Cancer Foundation helped me online by showing helpful hints for how to stay healthy. John Wayne inspired me to fight cancer.
