This is Jason’s story.
If at the beginning of 2019 you had asked me to describe myself, and the plans I had for the year I would have told you I was a healthy 41 year old man, happily married with two awesome boys. I would have said that hockey was in my veins and that I was an athlete at my core. My plan was to be a dad, I was excited about the upcoming hockey season and coaching my youngest. I’m a son, a husband, a painter, a real estate agent, and that I had plans to finish some home renovations and walk my dog.
At the beginning of 2020, I am now a cancer survivor, happily married with two awesome boys, legally blind in my left eye and waiting for a surgery date to reverse my ileostomy. In the past five months I had two major surgeries and I haven’t been cleared to lift more than 10lbs, blow my nose, tie my shoes or return to work. I wasn’t allowed to drive for 6 months and was completely reliant on others.
