8 years ago today I was sitting at @MozartsCoffee in Austin, Texas while I was working for @GovernorPerry when I got the call that I had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I remember asking if that was the “good kind,” or the “bad kind.” (1/x)
2 weeks later, I began Chemo plus a trial drug called Brentuximab at @MDAndersonNews, & had treatment for 5 months. I had a 4 month old daughter and a 2 year old son. My wife took the brunt of everything, as is often the case for those fighting illness. (2/x)
I am immeasurably blessed and thankful to be a survivor. This reality informs much of my policy views - including wanting every American to have the ability to get the best healthCARE possible. But it also colors my perspective on the day-to-day stupidity of politics. (3/x)
