Tell us about yourself:
I'm an automotive repair man and businessman. I had my own business up until 2018, when I came down with third stage rectal cancer, so I went through major surgery and then spent 9 months of 2019 in intensive chemotherapy and radiation. Since then I've had to retire and I've been in recovery. I've got three years clean from cancer. I just take one day at a time. I love camping, traveling, and my family life.
