End of Week 3 - Eating and Working Are More Difficult
The side-effects of treatment are starting to hit Marty harder as he goes through the third week of treatment for HPV-Related throat cancer
As week three of Marty Griffin's treatment for HPV-related throat cancer ended, "normal" things were getting more difficult as his doctors predicted they would. Food tasted like "leaves in the yard" to him, so getting the right amount of nutrition became even harder. Doing his KDKA radio show got more challenging too. "I'm not complaining. I'm lucky to be alive," Marty told his listeners. "But if you hear me taking fluids during the show, it's not your traditional talk show habit. The water keeps me talking."
There were still moments of inspiration and reasons to smile. The Sparkt cameras were there when Marty and son Vince got "twin" haircuts, and enjoyed a lot of laughs, thanks to a house call by Marty's good friend Emilio Cornacchione, owner of Izzazu Salon.
