Jim's Story: #EsophagealCancer
Jim Ferraro has always been a 'glass half full' kind of guy. Retired from the defense industry, he is inspired by nature and the outdoors, the love of his close family and his faith in God.
Jim’s positive outlook was put to the test in 2010, when, at the age of 61, he had a choking incident at a Labor Day family barbecue. A piece of meat got stuck and wouldn’t move up or down his throat. Jim threw up what looked like bile, and his daughter, a nurse, was immediately alarmed. “Something just didn’t feel right,” he recalled.
