Good interview. My wife is a two time survivor so I really can identity with the fear of the unknown that the diagnosis brings. We don't take life for granted and try to live it as fully as possible. Wish you the best Doug. Riley

Bernardo, That was a really good interview. I was telling Morry how well I thought you did. You asked great questions. Thanks so much for doing this. Doug offered some great advice that I will definitely keep in mind. I also liked that marathon analogy he used. - Rachel

Great interview Bernado, important that we all take stock of what is truly important to us - and that we live "our great lives" with passion, compassion and love for those around us. We should enjoy the journey in the moment while we can, rather than focussing on the destination - because when we get there, it is never what we envisaged anyway. People are often scared to talk about cancer - and to those affected by it. I think that is a modern-day affliction - people are too far separated from what is real and important. Doug is exactly the kind of person we need to inspire people to open their (shut-off) minds - inspring!
