My Final Journey

An open letter by Angelo Miozza, February 6, 2018

Dear family, brethren, & friends:

As some of you know, after 38-years in business, I sold my company last year. I was hoping to spend more quality time with my wife, children, and grandchildren (Proverbs 17:6). I’d like to see all my children and grandchildren grow up and marry in the Lord, and spend more focused time working in the Lord’s vineyard. But something has come up that will most likely alter or shorten these plans.

I was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer (no, I am not a smoker), which they’re saying has metastasized to my bones/skeleton.

The good doctors at the Reading Hospital Cancer Center are giving me options to make my remaining time more comfortable and encouraging. How much time I have no one really knows. It could be months or maybe even several years. Statistically speaking we can generally say 1 to 5 years. But as one of my seasoned doctor said to me, “that is in the Lord’s hand.”

The fact that I am not very old (58) and in good shape, a non-smoker with no breathing issues, and with all the on-going advancements in the medical community, remains in my favor. But it is important for me to point out that currently as I am told, there are no known cures in the medical community for what I have only procedures and medicine to relieve/lesson symptoms and make my life more comfortable. Regardless, I hope to spend my remaining time being productive and preparing myself to meet my maker.

Yes, we are looking at some other cancer centers and credible alternatives that may give me other options, or new advanced clinical trials can pop up; all these I would consider. But right now, the Reading Cancer Center is doing a great and efficient job. Over the last 30-days I think I have had every known scan done. In their Monday staff meetings, they look over my situation as well as others with 30 to 40 specialized cancer doctors with who knows how many hundreds of years of combined experience.

Over the next three or four weeks they will be treating two areas of my body that are currently giving me the most problems, one area in my lower left hip and one in my sternum. They hope to remove maybe 95% of the cancer in those areas along with securing and stabilizing my left hip joint. After that we wait to see what pops up next.

As far as the 2.5 cm mass in my right lower lung, that has shifted and is no longer giving me pain. They will monitor it, but for now surgery to remove it is off the table.

I have lived a good life, although with regrets, and I do desire to live a long life. As someone once said a half century ago; “Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place.”

I will remember what Jesus said in Matt 19:26 and will pray like King Hezekiah did in the Old Testament 2 Kings 20:1-6. Whatever the answer and no matter the outcome, I will trust in God and praise His Holy name.

I pledge that I will strive to learn to be content and to count each day a blessing.

Thank you all for being my friends. Please remember me in your thoughts and prayers, James 5:16. Please share this letter with anyone you like.

Blessed be the name of the Lord.

In Him.…Angelo Miozza
