Even Cancer Is Better With Bacon

What do you do when your doctor tells you that you have stage 4 terminal cancer?..you have no options except for palliative care or Hospice…a number of months to live…it will cost you thousands of dollars…but it won’t cure the cancer…weekly scans, doctors visits, poked with needles, not to mention the side effects, possibly an earlier death from the chemo and the time lost doing all these things…I decided to spend my money on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training at Bastos BJJ i Midland, Texas, a trip to Hawaii, San Francisco, Texas Hill Country and quality time with my wife, kids, including seeing my daughter married…I am convinced I would not be here today if I would have continued with chemo. This will not be the right choice for everyone but for me it was the right decision, at 56 years old I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 4-5 times a week, kettlebells 2-3 times a week. I have a great life.
