Phil Kinney was diagnosed with a very rare cancer called Thymic Carcinoma. He was devasted when he got the news. He had recently retired and planned on spending more time with his grandchildren, and working on his golf game.
"They called me late at night,” Phil said. “It’s never a good sign when a doctor calls you last at night. The cancer I had was deadly. It floored me. I considered it a death sentence and had to be treated quickly."
Phil consulted Dr. Carmine Frumeinto, a CMH thoracic surgeon about removing the tumor which was very close to his heart. Once it was removed, he went through a very aggressive chemotherapy treatment plan. That was five years ago, and Phil has plans to continue “beating the odds” and live life to the fullest every day.
