I am my husband’s wife… loving every moment we share. He is from Toronto Canada and a fan of the Montreal Canadiens. He’s a hockey coach extraordinaire… bringing UC Davis to their only championship and winning coach of the year. He now coaches off and on at the local rink. Melanoma reared it’s ugly head in 2009. The mole on his arm had been ignored by physicians for 15 years. (Didn’t look like your typical threat.) Note to all, don’t guess… have it removed!
