    well, i went to the doctor yesterday, and was diagnosed with melanoma. he says the spots are too big to remove without needing a serious skin graft, and we dont have the money for that. if im lucky i have all of 10 years to live.

    you have no idea how i feel right now. not even close.

  4. for real dood-
    sorry to hear that shit, BUT i truely believe in my heart that the right attitude can get you farther then a doctor or medicine. i know people living with HIV for 15+ years and take no meds. alot is in the right attitude. plus, 10 years is alot of time for doctors to work on a cure.

    spend some time on the net investigating it.

    you are right, we have no idea...
    i wonder what we can do.
    any ideas?

    how much would the operation cost?...try to get benefit shows booked and try to raise money. there is nothing shameful in raising money to save your life.

    Hey man, I'm sure my band would do a benifit show and send all the cash to you so you can afford your operation(Zack Morris' idea of benifit shows). Whatever little can help. I'm sure my band would be more than willing to put up a few Saturday nights of playing shows to help a brother with melannoma out.

    dude, I'm not gonna say I'm not sorry, but I am saying, WTF? Ten years, that's a long time, you can beat it, EASY, they gave my uncle 10 months and he went for 22, my grandma was in treatment for 5 years... both of these folks were easily twice your age when they got diagnosed, you have youth and vigor on your side, don't fuck it up with a shitty attitude... OH, and my boy that woke up one day with bruises all over, went to the hospital and found out he had Lukemia and was on the check out list for next week... now it's 7 years later and his 'baby' is 5 and so on... this is merely a speedbump, though I'm sure it looks like a mountian, keep your head up

    yeah I got on to him, no time to sit down, there's work to be done and a race to be won, no sense crying over spilled milk... and what did you say to encourage him, or do you just keep the hyenas at bay until he's dead?
