She fought well against the breast cancer disease but in the end the fatal disease won. These sorrows have always haunted John.

Extravagant Lifestyle

The goal was achieved and he had a rush of revenues coming into his accounts. He is in a position to get whatever he desires for. The lifestyle has changed extraordinarily. And the tragic incidents in his life pushed him to spend more to overcome that feeling of loss. The extravagant spending is seen in his house he resides, the wardrobe he maintains and the accessories he carries along. This is more of an escape rather than an urge.
