What!! Old age in the 50's...hmmmm. You are only as old as you think you are.
Me...probably back into my 20 something by now. If you ever played sports, then you know about
those pains that come back after years of being silent, just waiting to find the most appropriate time to spring up on you and make you remember your body wasn't supposed to be that flexible back then.
You are beating back cancer, so hold your head up with dignity
