This man took a chance on me after it was determined due to my health problems I was not going to live through a lung lobectomy. The operation was very long and after I had almost all the complications we had expected. Except I lived. I did not end up on a Ventilator. My cancer is all cut out, margins are clean and am grateful his team has given Me this 2nd chance
