As a former teacher, he was pleased to see some of his old students working at CBCC, and going to be assisting with his treatment. The friendly faces provided him warmth and strength to get through it.
Getting Through Treatment
To resolve his non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, he came in to see Dr. Kanamori in 2006, who treated him with Rituxan, a common medication to stop growth of the cells.
Again in 2017, Stuart came in to treat his prostate cancer with Dr. Desai. This particular procedure took six weeks of radiation therapy.
“Life didn’t change much for me when I was getting cured, I just kept on going as usual. And I didn’t have any doubt in my mind that I wasn’t going to kick the cancer out!”
Getting Back to Life
“We are proud of our cancer journeys, we are not scared. If it comes back we will do whatever we need to do to fight it, with the help of CBCC.”
