Chuck Frederick / Personal Reaction to Diagnosis

"I didn't know how to tell my family that I had it so . . . then when I did go to the . . . Here I got a letter in the mail, the letter in the mail said I had cancer, and my kids were all standing around there. So I opened the letter, so then I called my wife and said I've got this letter here, do you want to look at it? I didn't want to call and tell her on the phone.

I'm not embarrassed about it, I've told other people about it. I mean I don't want them to feel sorry for me or anything, but I tell them about it because a lot of times I can't do the things that I used to do, and I don't want them to feel bad because I don't want to do the things. I just come right out and tell them and . . . you know, what to expect. And I tell them it's cured."
