About Me

I'm 52 and been building since I was 10. I'm no master builder, I build for me and mostly out of the kit box. The challenge for me is to make what I was given into something cool. This year has been a real challenge for me.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer. It was found in my neck, base of tongue and base of skull. I had radical neck dissection to remove the cancer and went through 35 treatments of radiation and 2 rounds of chemo. It ended in Feburary 2010.

So for the first part of the year I was to sick to even get up out of a chair, made numerous stays in the hospital, but I made it through the treatments and as of today, I am cancer free. I still cannot eat correctly due to lack of saliva and damage done to my throat by the surgery and radiation. But my saliva is slowly returning. I don't know if it will ever be back to normal. But I am alive and I thank the man above for that. It was only through his grace that I'm here to type this.

Well thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the models I post.
