Who I am: My name is Greg Myers. I grew up on the family farm and ranch in Southwest Kansas where I enjoyed driving tractors, combines, various other equipment and helping raise cattle. After high school, I attended Kansas State University and became a veterinarian. My first job led me to Texas where I still reside today with my wife and two sons.
The reason I wear a silicone ring: I was boating with my family 9 years ago at a lake in Oklahoma. I was trying to get back in the boat from the side and slipped. My ring got caught on the boat as I fell back in the water with all my weight. Needless to say, it pinched my wedding ring and tore all the skin loose from the base of my finger. All I could see was bone and tendon where my ring used to be. My wedding ring had to be cut off my finger before surgery could begin. I am glad to say I still have my finger and did not lose function. I was very lucky. I didn’t wear a ring until 6 years later when I discovered silicone rings.
