Stay Healthy, Live a Long Time

Hello! My name is Tony and this is my new blog. I decided to start this blog while I was in the hospital recovering from an operation I had to have to remove a tumour from my body.

However, since being diagnosed, I have been learning all I can about how to stay healthy.
