The past several years haven’t been easy for John Zahm.
Zahm, 72, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1994, had the gland surgically removed and about five years later thought he was on the verge of another bout with malignancy.
In more recent years spinal stenosis and other back problems have him daily taking medication to control the pain.
