Albert was also asked how he believes he got his cancer. He says he thinks he first got it back in the ’60s when he came into contact with Agent Orange. In all his years of cancer treatment, it caused his skin to burn up, so laying down in some ice-cold snow felt amazing on his body. The family all agrees that the look on Albert’s face when he saw the snow was something they wouldn’t ever forget.
