Hi and welcome to Laughing with Cancer

Elvis at KATG First off I would like to tell you a little about myself and why I have a podcast called Laughing with Cancer.  My name is Rick Ochoa but a lot of people know me as Elvisrico. I'm a father, a grandfather, an Elvis impersonator, and a cancer survivor.  My cancer is not gone but I'm surviving with it. I was diagnosed with Leukemia on Valentines Day 2003 ( quite the "I love you gift" ).  I was diagnosed with CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) a slower progressing cancer, but progressing nonetheless.  Ever since that day my life has been a roller coaster ride of emotion and confusion (from being positive, to thoughts of suicide).  One of the things that has helped me is laughter and a podcast called Keith and the Girl.
