I am 55 years old and a lot of my free time is spent acquiring cars, fixing them up, and moving on to the next one—that is, when I’m not working in my own auto body shop for my day job. My work is a big part of my life and I’m not yet ready to give it up, which is why when I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, I wasn’t sure what to think.
