I had a manager in 2017. A very kind, selfless, funny man. He was only 38, had 4 kids and a wife, he was diagnosed with throat cancer (well, esophageal, if that’s different?) and passed away within 6 months of his diagnosis. He didn’t even smoke or drink, just had acid reflux. Hurts my heart just thinking about it. I’m honestly surprised how flippant this article makes throat cancer seem. Just worried about losing your voice? I wish this man could at least be alive, voice or not.
