Hungry for Life

Many of you know that I recently went on my First Descents kayaking trip. Rather than describe the experience in words, I'm going to attempt via pics.
Just know that First Descents is an organization that brings together young adult cancer survivors (aka the most incredible people you will ever meet) for a week of white-water kayaking (or some other grand adventure).
And if you really can't stand a story without words, here are the words I wrote down on the plane home to capture the feelings (picked up this habit from Tanzania...when I was too lazy to write a journal entry (so everyday), I would write down a few words or bullets.)













































G-String, Snaps, Stoner, Creamed Corn, This Guy, Stitch, Smooth, Patch, Irish, Homewrecker, Mama Bean, Chef Vigetti, Chef Winks, Mayor, Rut-Roh, Bun Buns, Gnomeo, Squirt, Blunt, Omlette, T-Cell, I love you all. 
One of the worst side effects from cancer that no one warned me about is a sense of loneliness. You guys erased that and make it so much easier to go through this as a single youngin. Such a magical week of adrenaline, laughter, happiness, and love.

  3. Hi Corey,

    I’m following up on the message I sent you last week on behalf of AbbVie and the VESTA Study, which is currently recruiting patients with advanced or metastatic squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We want to provide patients with information about this study opportunity as well as spread the word for lung cancer.

    I hope you will consider sharing this information with your audience. Shareable infographics can be downloaded here. If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me at pmeckler@gopraxis.com.

    Thanks!
    Paige

  5. As a sign of gratitude for how my wife was saved from CANCER, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My wife suffered cancer in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because she was my all and the symptoms were terrible, she always complain of abnormal vaginal bleeding, and she always have pain during sexual intercourse. . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure her. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to cancer . I never imagined cancer. has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my wife will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my wife used it and in one months time she was fully okay even up till this moment she is so full of life. cancer. has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony.
