The Tattoo

The Tattoo

In 1995 I was diagnosed with terminal Cancer and given 4-6 months to live. As my wife and I talked about the things we wished we had done and what to do with what was left I said I wished I had gotten a tattoo when I was in. My wife told me, get one there's time. I said, we'll fight this thing and if I live to be 60 I'll get one for my birthday.

I've been Cancer free for five years and had a tattoo there.
