Dr. Gary Storkan, a local chiropractor, spent seven-and-a-half years in battle. Now, he is announcing his victory.
Storkan, who has lived and worked in Los Alamos for 20 years, came face to face with his enemy, Squamous Cell Carinoma, when he was diagnosed with the cancer, which was found in one of his tonsils, on May 31, 2001. The cancer had manifested in a bronchial cleft cyst in his neck.
This diagnosis started a seven-and-a-half year ordeal to beat this foe.
