Conquering cancer consists of self-determination and unconditional positive regard.
Surviving a fatal diagnosis with the power of prayer by Beau G.

Pictured below, in late November of 2005, around Thanksgiving time, I began to notice what I thought was a ...developing muscle on the right side of my neck from an aggressive swim class at the Napa Valley College.

In this aggressive swim class, I only breathed from the right side; pulling my face from the water where my chin met my right shoulder with each breath.

At the discovery of the lump/mass on the right side of my neck, I began to use only the left side to breathe during what became four-thousand yards each week; during two one and one half hour swim meets.

Sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas, as pictured above, the lump/mass was significantly apparent at that time.  The lump/mass did not hurt; I thought I was developing a muscle.  However, my right hand and arm experienced an unusual pain escalation and previously controlled headaches returned on a more often than not basis.

...In late December 2005, around Christmas time, I presented my condition and swim muscle theory to the Pain Center team at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

From the Pain Center team, appropriate referrals and appointments were made whereby a fatal stage IV metastatic head and neck cancer   was diagnosed.

Pictured above and to the right is the lump/mass on the right side (your left) of my neck which is significantly noticeable at the time of diagnosis.
