Living loud post-cancer
I first met Jim Semonik (aka DJ Hiem) a good 10+ years ago when I was rolling around with my goth/industrial friends, going to shows and the occasional dance night. He was always a force to be reckoned with, so it is not surprising to me at all that he recently took the stage again with his band, rein[forced], after battling colorectal cancer.
Theres a great video on KDKA about Jim and his story, you can check it out here.
Its another reminder that cancer is not only for the old, or the unhealthy, and that there IS life beyond cancer.
You can also check out rein[forced] by visiting their myspace page.
