Meet Daniel Daniel Shockley, survivor Mililani, Hawaii Family Daniel’s Story My name is Daniel Shockley, I am a retired military member, I reside in Hawaii and am a pre-colorectal cancer survivor with an attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis (AFAP) diagnosis.

That I have the privilege to share my positive attitude and personal experience as a source of inspiration and encouragement to others! What advice do you have for others in the fight? When dealing with life’s challenges you have a choice to make — Do you react or respond? If you react, it may lead you to making a decision you could later regret. If you respond, it allows you the opportunity to gather information in an effort to make a rational decision. I prefer to respond and prepare myself. By choosing to respond I often reflect back on the old cliché “You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink.” I once heard there is a flip side to this saying. “You can influence a horse to drink the water by feeding it salt on the way.” I refer to the “salt” in this expression as the resources available to us impacted by cancer that allow us to prepare ourselves when having to adapt to life’s challenges. By maintaining a positive attitude the opportunity for a success story is much higher. I truly believe that having a positive outlook allows me to have a better chance of overcoming adversities that I am faced with during my lifetime.
