Heart Surgeon with prostate cancer surviving for many years

A friend of mine has survived for 25 years with three types of cancer including prostate cancer. He is a 98-year-old former heart surgeon who is a member of his local Cancer Connection to give younger people, who think cancer means a death sentence, hope that they can live a long time. He is also a member of Death with Dignity because he would like to choose how he dies.  He describes what it was like to find out he had prostate cancer and what he and his wife did about it. His name is Dr. Tito Gambarini and he is from Argentina and lost his wife to ovarian cancer. He went to medical school with Che Guevara and paints paintings of failed heart surgies. I am sharing this because I want others to feel hope from what he has been through. You can watch the interview with him here: https://youtu.be/_xik-GUFrnU
