The people in charge of Moffitt Cancer Center's upcoming Men's Health Forum couldn't have picked a better person to open with a few words of welcome than Hillsborough County Commissioner Les Miller. • The 62-year-old former state lawmaker has survived three bouts of cancer: prostate cancer in 1985 and 2007 and kidney cancer 2005. • Cancer runs in his family. Miller's father died of prostate cancer, his sister died of leukemia, and both his wife and daughter have twice survived cancer. Times staff writer Will Hobson spoke to Miller recently about what he has learned from his health battles, how they've changed his life and what he hopes to accomplish in the second half of his commission term.
