“The doctor told me I had about a week left,”

“The hardest part about the whole thing was telling my bros, how would they feel if their youngest brother died?”

Conner was declared cancer-free in May 2016, returned to Pitt for his senior season and was drafted by the Steelers

*Imagine hearing those words – “You have a week left.” What would you do with your life, if given a second chance?

MONEY

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
