I Barf, Therefore I Am
Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times says, "Laughter, tears, and the indomitable spirit - they're front and center as Jerry Perisho details his very personal war with prostate cancer." Jerry Perisho has been a CEO or senior officer with various southern California corporations since 1982. Additionally, he is a professional freelance comedy writer who created and operated a very successful joke writing business. When he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2004 at the age of 52, he discovered that his cockeyed view of the world and his sense of humor helped him survive the surgery, chemotherapy and two years of hormone therapy that were to follow. In fact, he flourished. This is his tender and hilarious story of the tears, the fears and the many funny things and amazing people he has encountered since cancer entered his personal world.
