"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?"
“Be optimistic.”
“When did you have the toughest time being optimistic?”
“Two months ago, when I got diagnosed with prostate cancer.”
“What was your initial response?”
“Depression, anxiety, fear. They caught it pretty late. Hopefully not too late, but late. There were times when I was walking down the street and I wished that I could just get shot or hit by a bus. My father died of prostate cancer when I was twelve, so you know, I assumed that was it for me.”
“So how’d you get past those feelings?”
“By going to work every day. And having a drink every night.”
