During my teenage years i had to battle with cancer (twice), which completely change my body appereance. Now 10 years later, I have to battle with the side effects from the radiation I was given to cure the cancer. The latest news I was given was that i wouldn't be able to eat by mouth for the rest of my life. It appears that the food won't go to my stomach but to my lungs putting me in danger of obtaining pneumonias and a bunch of other diseases. As of February of 2008 I have been eating through a feeding tube that was put on my stomach after been hospitalized for a couple of weeks. As hard as it is for me to say this, "it seems like there's always a light at the end of the tunnel". This particular tube has been my light in a way because now I weight more than i ever had ever since my sickness, and with the permission of my doctors i have been allowed to start lifting weights. SO this is my chance to finally to TRANSFORM MY BODY and look somewhat NORMAL once again
Why I Love it
I love working out because it makes me forget about the past, and it allows me to see the "NEW ME"
