"Leaving the light on was the great gesture I ever heard of," Pagano said. "Clips were installed so [the light] couldn't be turned off."
Advise to cancer patients -- Pagano was asked about any advice he would give any one who was facing the same type of ordeal with cancer that he battled.
"To people with cancer, have support of your family," he said. "Your attitude, the way you attack this thing. It all seems so doom and gloom. You have to battle every day. There are going to be good and bad days. To everyone out there, it's your faith. Your belief. Your will. With that will, you can overcome anything."
