2002-2003 -Chemotherapy at Hillman Cancer Center.
Completed the 18 chemotherapy treatments as a follow up to my "colon tuck" at UPMC. Not as much fun as my successful back surgery for a herniated disk in 1996.
In good hands! Graphic Description!
Colonoscopy exam! If your over 50, have it done!

My father became the pastor of Blairsville Presbyterian Church in December of 1950. Thus began many years of shoveling walks, cutting grass, keeping the lights lit on the Christmas trees, running the PA system and all the other responsibilities and duties of the "The Preachers Kid."
About 1952 Attorney Miller purchased one of every known piece of audiovisual equipment as a gift for the church. As a 10-year-old, I was delegated the assignment of figuring out all of this state-of-the-art technology!
The recording the Christmas Service for the "shut-ins"
was father's first idea for the Ampro Tape Recorder.
These experiences eventually lead to degrees in The Physics at Monmouth College, Communications at Syracuse and a 32-year career as the technology coordinator for the Churchill/Woodland Hills Schools.
