About PJ Ahlers

At the age of 32, PJ Ahlers was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer and given a prognosis of 2 to 3 years to live. Although cancer does not define him, he used the news as a source of inspiration in his writing and through his podcast I’m Dying Here. He is a graduate of Portland State University, as well as a husband, father, brother, son, poet, writer of fiction, seeker of attention and – it is generally agreed upon – sort of a whiner.
