Hello there,

I’m Christian J. Farber:

 

Call me Chris. I have quit, been fired and retired and am here to share inspirational stories about how to be successful, what it takes, and what it means at home and at work.

I had a great career and instead of having a retirement party decided to launch this site for my musings about work, life, aging, cancer, and even death. I have experience with them all and am happy to share.

advice for those affected by Cancer

Speaking as a Survivor

As someone who has defeated Prostate Cancer first-hand, I find comfort and joy in sharing my experiences. I grew up in a family where my mother, father, sister and I all suffered from cancer, my sister passed from it at 52. My life with cancer has shaped who I am today and writing about my experience gives me a platform to inform and inspire other cancer sufferers, survivors, their partners and families.
