m just really appreciative of the love that's been shown to me. One of the things that really helped me when I was going through the treatment, I would just sit up for hours and read e-mails. That was just really great for me.
JC: The message board on your Web site had all sorts of great stuff, too.
WT: People just don't have any idea how much that really helped me and helped me through on my tough days.
JC: What were the tough days like?
WT: It was tough. The hardest thing for me ... was when the doctor told me that I was going to have to take it easy for a while. I was like, "I don't know how to take it easy.” That was one of the toughest things, to learn how to relax. But it did help me. It was time to really enjoy life. Not that I wasn't enjoying life, but to enjoy another part of life that maybe was going by me. It gave me a chance to be with my wife and kids and be home. That was really good for me.
JC: How does what you went through shape you now?
WT: From this point on, I'm a walking testimony that you can make it. As long as you live, you're going to have some bumps in the road. It's how you come out of those that determines your character and who you are as a person.
JC: So, are you done with cancer treatments, or is there more remaining?
WT: I'm still going through my medical treatments now. I don't know how much longer, but it's not stopping me. I'm able to work and do what I'm doing.
JC: Do you consider yourself cancer-free?
WT: Yes, I do.
