I threw a rib out this weekend. Luckily my brother, Kevin, is a Chiropractor so I was able to get an adjustment. There is something scary about your baby brother (the one you harassed as a child) twisting your neck and body. But I love my baby (can't say little he is 6ft tall) brother and I am so blessed to still have him in my life!
5 years ago he was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma (cancer of the leg bone/marrow... Survival for localized disease is 65-70% when treated with chemotherapy. Long term survival for metastatic disease is 25-30%) which is very rare in someone in their late 20's. He has a steel rod in his leg and a femur bone from organ donor (if you are not a donor... please consider as you may make a difference in someone's life long after you are gone!) He had to undergo rounds and rounds of chemotherapy.
For today, he is cancer free!! He is looking toward the future with hope and trying to buy back into a Chiropractic partnership again as he had to sell his half when he was diagnosed. So every day I rejoice that I have my brother around for that day and get an adjustment when I can :)
ON A SIDE NOTE: Both my sons have been adjusted from the time the were 2 weeks old. Tyler used to crawl up on the table as a toddler and say Bubba (his name for my brother) get fixed Meaning he wanted an adjustment. :)
Afterwards... I just laid there and Stretched
