n July 31st, 2006, I retired and one week later was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. In Nov of 2010 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and had my prostate removed. In Dec of 2010 I was diagnosed with throat cancer and surgery removed 95% of the tumor and radiation was used to complete the therapy.
In 2011/2012, I hiked 1353 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). I plan on hiking again in 2013 and hope to complete the remaining 1303 miles. For those not familiar with the PCT, it begins at the Mexican border near San Diego and ends at the Canadian border above Seattle.
This book is about my overcoming the adversities of the 3 cancers and hiking the PCT at the age of 70.
Over 50% of my profits will be donated to the American Lung Assn. I will also be donating to the Pacific Crest Trail Assn.

The title of the book is "Peaks and Valleys a Hike of Hope." The Peaks and Valleys represent both the ups and downs of fighting the cancers and the struggles I had in climbing UP many inclines and the various ailments I had while hiking.
I have given many cancer patients hope in their battles with this insidious disease. How many 70 year old men have completed the 2656 miles after battling 3 cancers. For greater information, my blog is postholer.com/tnx4asking .
