So I realized it might be good to do a recap here of my story, otherwise known as, “No, really, I promise I almost died six years ago.”

(I guess this is probably a good time to warn you all that I have a warped sense of humor. #thankscancer )
May 2016, five days after my 29th birthday, I am diagnosed in an @StRoseHospitals ER when a CT scan finds a 13 cm tumor that has taken over my right kidney. The amazing ER doctor & PA had already called a local urologist so I can see him first thing in the morning.
My local (Vegas) urologist says, “I’ve got one surgeon in town who *might* be willing to take your case.” Yikes! He encourages going to CA instead, specifically to @UCLAHealth. He steps out of the room & calls the surgeon who did *his* nephrectomy on his cell phone to get me in.
