    Venturini:
    "Back in June I was diagnosed with rectal cancer, stage 3. It was also in my lymph nodes. After 6 months of Chemo and the 30 straight days of radiation, then 8 more weeks anticipating what’s going to. Today was the day to remove tumor and see how we have done. Dr. Dobson (Dr. McDreamy) as the nurses call him is the best. He tried a relatively new approach to this. Chemo, radiation, then surgery. The good NEWS, I’m still alive,Cancer is gone, tumor surgery when better than expected. As soon as we all can get back to The thing that we love,RACING, I am planning on being there."
