T was diagnosed with throat cancer last August after noticing a lump on his throat along with some other symptoms. The outlook for his illness was pretty grim, although the doctors did give him some hope. He underwent months of hellish radiation, which did things to his body that I will not even go into. As he was finishing his last radiation treatment, his heart started giving him trouble. The doctors suggested that if he could make it a year, they could possibly undergo heart surgery to repair the heart; but in the end, his heart would still most likely be the thing that would kill him. His heart is doing that now, as he has a 6 cm. aneurysm in his aorta and there is nothing more to be done.
