He had me get an ultrasound that same day and then called me …More…

imageMason0875 - in need of a little help.  My wife doesn't really know I am doing this but it is all for her.

It started out as a lump on her breast, we found out it was cancer. Few years after going into remission we found out she has multiple myeloma.  I work and she …More…

But again, I chalked it up to poor diet. I finally decided something was clearly not right when one morning …More…
