Jim - Merkel Cell Carcinoma

Jim - Merkel Cell Carcinoma

Born in Olympia and raised in Sedro-Woolley, Jim moved to Omak and started a 25-year lobbying career. One day, he found two strange bumps on his chin, which wouldn’t heal, and kept changing in size, from small to large and back again. When he went to the doctor in August 2017, the diagnosis was sobering: merkel cell carcinoma, a rare type of skin cancer.
