It definitely is a small small world


Recommended Posts

Tom an I had a rare weekend day without any kids so we decided to do some garage saleing. We stopped at one here in Palatine and struck up a conversation with the home owners Jose and Linda. Within this conversation we found out how small a world this really is.

Tom was a pilot of small planes for hobby and Jose is a retired aviation maintenance manager for United airlines. Tom and Jose both had heart bypass operations by the same surgeon at the same hospital a year apart. Both had AAA repairs at the same hospital a year apart. Both are lung cancer survivors. Jose is a 6 year survivor and Tom an almost 3 year survivor.

It was quite the conversation. Congrats to both Tom & Jose for beating the odds and being able to share their stories with each other.
