Hello, my name is Ed Matos and I have cancer, I’m not really sure why I’m making this video, I’m not an actor, not a video buff, I think I just decided to make it just in case I don’t make it, things aren’t looking really good with my cancers, I have three of them. But I’m not making this video to describe the cancers that I have, but to just tell you that, I could of probably prevented them. This is my second time, even the first time, when I celebrated my 50th birthday, my wife was right on top of me, to get an exam, the exam you should get when your 50 a Colonoscopy, and I just avoided it, didn’t have the time, didn’t have the time, but I did hide the fact that I was just – I was scared, I was – I was just really afraid. I didn’t know what it entailed, but I never cared much for doctors to begin with. Maybe that’s because I never really needed them. I never really got sick in my life, but in short I didn’t get the Colonoscopy.
A few years later, I went through – I can’t even describe the pain I went through. After 5 visits to the emergency rooms and being hospitalized twice, and the 3rd time I really felt that I was dying and just refused to leave the hospital. Well they finally got their act together and they found it, it was cancer. Everything it became a big deal then. Had to go through an operation. After that I went through the chemo. I survived it. Then I got scared again. I didn’t want to go for that follow up. I just didn’t. It took a lot out of me, but that’s not an excuse, but I used it as one. But it’s not an excuse. And because I didn’t do the follow ups, now I’m where I’m at, now I have 3 cancers. And the doctors are not really to sure right, it doesn’t look good, I know it, I even feel it.
So I guess the reason I’m making this video is to upload it into the internet and maybe somebody will look at it and hopefully learn from it. I can tell you right now what I’ve learned, that my wife is the greatest. That women are a lot smarter than men can even imagine, they take pain better than we do, they’re more logical than we are, they’re persistent, and we get angry because of it. At least, I know I did.

I really want to live. When I was younger I didn’t care about dying. But I certainly care about it now because I’m close to it – again. I love to live for my wife Laura who is suffering just as much as I am. I [would] love to live for my daughter who is a Senior at Texas A&M, I’d like to see her graduation. I’d like to see her grow up. Life isn’t bad. I’ve had some bad times, but life isn’t bad when you really really look at it. So what would I ask people to do out there, men as well as women, don’t be afraid if you need a procedure, either talk to your doctor or talk to someone that’s had it and they’ll describe it to you, so at least you’ll know what to expect. I didn’t know what to expect from a Colonoscopy and it’s a piece of cake. I didn’t know what to expect from a prostrate biopsy, it was a piece of cake. I didn’t know what to expect from a little biopsy, it wasn’t a piece a cake but it wasn’t that bad. You gotta do what you gotta do. I think whether you’re a man or a woman, you have somebody out there that loves you. Could be your husband, your wife, mother, father, your sister, your brother, your cousin, your aunt, your next door neighbor, your co-worker.
You owe it to yourself to be a little smarter, to be careful how you eat, a little more exercise, a little restraint, courage, and realizing when something doesn’t seem right, you gotta check it. If you don’t trust your doctor, change your doctor. But don’t just say to yourself: “I feel great.” That’s nothing to do. I feel great, too. Then all of a sudden, from September up until November, I’m sorry – from the end of July to the second week of November every night I thought I was gonna die, the pain was so excruciating, but before that I felt excellent. After my chemo I felt excellent, I started gaining the weight and feeling good and then I got stupid again, don’t be stupid. Take care of yourself, don’t let things wait because somebody out there loves you. Just like my wife loves me and my daughter love me, and I’m so afraid that I’m not gonna be with them no more.

I have friends that love me also, one of them even got an idea and said that I should write to Oprah Winfrey cause she’s done marvelous things for people, I’ve heard those things too, my luck doesn’t run that way, I like writing letters but I think it’s more important to tell people on the internet, I heard that people really look at these videos and I’m sorry it’s not a HA-HA video. But I hope that it helps someone out there. Don’t be a Macho-Man. Do what you have to do. If not, you’ll end up like me. I hope I stay alive. I don’t know if I will but I hope. I would ask you to say a kind word on my behalf to who ever you speak to, to who ever you pray to. Good luck. I love you all. Bye.
