Ed Montgomery who previously visited our club on January 25, 2010 was again our guest speaker. By trade, Ed has been a handyman and licensed commercial builder. In November 2008, Ed's dentist advised him to see a specialist concerning swelling of his lymph nodes on his neck. Ed went on to discover that he had throat cancer. Ed described his ordeals with having his cancer treated through recent advancements in treating cancer. Ed went under chemo therapy and suffered many side-effects including loss of hair, loss of taste, trouble with salivary glands, trouble swallowing, weight loss, and other sicknesses. Ed showed the brass and silver filters used during radiation therapy where he underwent eight weeks of treatments. During this time, Ed became aware of caringbridge.org where he developed a web site to stay in touch with his family and friends. As many have found with serious illnesses, family and friends may be hesitate to communicate often as not to disturb the patient. Though the use of the CaringBridge web technology, patients have an easier time staying in communication and relaying progress and soliciting support. Since his sickness, Ed has run marathons and most enjoys the 1500. He recently won an award for his age group and will compete next year in Hershey, PA. To learn more about Ed's compelling story of surviving cancer, please click here to view his web site where you can also order his book "Ed, It was Malignant" on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Ed-It-Was-Malignant-ebook/dp/B002SBA06S
