I'm a healthy, vibrant and joyful person who owns a Pilates & Gyrotonic studio near the beach in Santa Cruz CA.

I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer in 1997.  I had a total thyroidectomy along with some lymph nodes removed.  In 2000, I had a radical right neck dissection and had more lymph nodes removed.  After my TT, over a period of about 4 years I had 5 radioactive iodine treatments.

I was diagnosed with squamous...

Three months after my first child was born, I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis, an autoimmune disease. Although sarcoidosis spontaneously remits in many cases, I developed a chronic form of the disease in multiple organs-- my brain, heart, lungs, liver, cranial nerves, lymph nodes, and bones. Becoming chronically ill at the same time that I am learning the ropes of motherhood has been like...

I've been a healthy man up until I was diagnosed with BPH, then the Dr. felt a node on my prostate wanting to do a biopsy. Geezzzz....getting older is a drag...LOL. I love life, fair to my fellow man, and would love to fall in love again. Pipe dreams??? Maybe, but i'm a kicked back guy and would make a great catch...LOL.
