Meet Tom

Tom was diagnosed with stage-4 cancer in 1998. Due to the Stoma on his neck, it's impossible for him to swim. Tom loved to swim.

Being diagnosed with stage-4 cancer means Tom has had to relearn many simple tasks—like ordering lunch for he and his wife.

Tom talks about quitting, and then being diagnosed 5 years later with stage -4 cancer. Unfortunately, the damage was already done.

Living with a stoma has taught Tom to deal with the unexpected. Little things like coughing up flies and his pet bird's feathers.
