A lone sailor was washed up into the coast of an unknown reef caused by the hurricane that he met on his journey.
His transport was destroyed due to the impact of the crash and he had no choice but to step out of his sinking ship.
He was lost. He had no idea where he is and all he can see are pink sands, sparkling ice that seems not to melt and a
thick fog covering the sun. He was starving so he had to explore the reef in barefoot to find food and temporary
shelter but he was not successful. His feet were trembling from the cold and fell down. When he woke up, creatures
that had big blue eyes, butterfly wings and tails were surrounding him, looking at him curiously. He was astonished
by what he saw but later on, learned how friendly these creatures are. They gave him green colored crabs and
glowing shrimps for food. They all gathered stones to make him shelter and cracked big shards of ice to serve as his
window. He was having the time of his life. Years have passed and he grew lonely. He misses being with his kind.
The adorable little creatures noticed this and though it pains them to see him go, they built him a ship nothing can
pierce through and drew him a map on which route to take. As the sailor sails away, they exchanged nods with each
other. They know, they may never see each other again but it was the adventure of a lifetime that they will never

I had been experiencing persistent chest pain and a sore throat for more than two months when I found myself in
the office of Dr. David E. Wood , an ENT affiliated with UPMC Horizon . I was honestly surprised when he told me I
had throat cancer . A biopsy performed by Dr. Seungwon “Steve” Kim at the UPMC Eye and Ear Institute at UPMC
Presbyterian confirmed that my particular cancer was caused by the Human papillomavirus (HPV).
Dr. Kim referred me to radiation oncologist Dr. Raymond Wynn at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center at UPMC Horizon so
that I could undergo radiation treatment close to my home in Mercer, Pa. I had daily 15 minute radiation
treatments, as well as three weekly chemotherapy treatments from Dr. William Spielvogle , also at UPMC Hillman
Cancer Center at UPMC Horizon. Since the radiation was directed at my throat, Dr. Jon Henwood , a surgeon at
UPMC Horizon, surgically inserted a feeding tube in case I had trouble eating but it turned out that wasn't
necessary. Although I experienced the typical burns on my skin, I was able to continue to eat during my radiation
treatments. I did lose my salivary glands and taste buds, though, which I learned are common side effects of my
treatment. Although not the cause of my cancer, I also quit my 30 year smoking and drinking habits.
I finished my treatment on May 17, 2012. Even though the daily radiation was difficult, I would tell the nurses a joke
after every treatment session. They see a lot of difficult things in their career in any given day and they deserve a
laugh. Telling jokes and lifting their spirits was a way for me to lift my spirits.
I'm so thankful to my nurses and doctors, and especially to my family and my friends who supported me physically
and emotionally through my ordeal. As a way of giving back, my wife Maxine and our family participate in the
annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life event at Buhl Park in Hermitage. – Steve Glaser
