“My wife, Shari, and I have been married 35 years. My father-in-law, Bill Watson, passed away of stomach cancer at age 44. My mother-in-law, Connie, was widowed at 42 and died of lung cancer in 2007. I fight back against cancer because everyone should have a chance to grow old with their loving family.”
