It was September 2008 when I noticed a lump on my neck. I wasn’t experiencing any pain so I didn’t bother telling anyone. I continued with my life doing what I love?—?she decided to go to a place called Hippocrates Health Institute.playing soccer three times a week and coaching my son’s soccer team. I lead a busy life. I’m a mechanic with two repair shops. I’m also on the board of a monthly automotive training seminar. I didn’t say anything to anyone about the lump on my neck because I had to go to Italy for my brother’s wedding. Also, upon my return I would help set a new Guinness World Record for the longest indoor soccer game. The previous record was 30 hours and we completed 34 hours of playing. After the game I told my wife about my lump. She was upset. I went to the doctor and had a biopsy done. They removed my lymph node and found a cancer called follicular lymphoma. There were two more swollen lymph nodes in my abdomen and in my chest. I told a couple of my customers and one of them told me about a friend who had breast cancer.
