Jamie Goes To The Dentist

A hobby I have grown quite fond of lately is taking pictures and making short YouTube videos of our journey, and other random stuff.

For those who may not know, the cancer was initially found in my colon, but after further testing it revealed that the cancer had metastasized to my liver, and lungs. I can’t really describe what it was last like in that moment when the oncologist informed us of the life altering news. Our world was turned upside down in a moment, and we have been trying…
