I've been urged by a few fellow 12ozers to make this post.   On December 26th I was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal adenocarcinoma. This cancer of the lower esophagus was caused by acid re

So, It's been two weeks since I last checked in here.   I had a "Smart Port" surgically implanted in my chest (just below the right collar bone). It is basically an injection port where they

Finally some good news... Prior to my sixth treatment session I had another CT scan performed. My oncologist said that all of the cancerous growths had reduced in size by about 50%. While that is certainly good progress, I am not cured by any means. Treatments will continue as normal until another CT scan in mid-June. For now I am only venturing out in the public for my appointments. The last thing I need is the coronavirus right now.

 

On an even lighter note: There a massive black bear that has been raiding our trash can. Finally caught him on the trail cam.

yo @-Rage-. You seen this?

 

 

My friends son had treatment from Burzynski - in my opinion it did extend his life past the expectations of the doctors focused on traditional medicine. 
 

My best friend Dub passed away in March after battling cancer for about 3 years. Looking back on it, seems to me like those last three years really helped him develop relationships. He reconnected with his sister who he had a falling out with - we focused on enjoying each day and living in the moment, huge lesson for me.

 

I will echo the resounding theme here - fuck cancer. @rageI wish you peace and love - keep your head up because I know it gets tough. Therapy helped my friend cope, talking openly with me about his fears and stress helped.......people are there for you even if its just strangers on the internet.

 

Maybe we need a @ragephoto thread- share your work with us man. If you have the energy during downtime -

I'm sorry to hear all this. As everyone else has already said in so many ways about the early aughts and the mark we've all left on each other, I can only agree.

A few years ago my uncle was diagnosed with acute myelocytic  leukemia. It was fast, relentless, and unforgiving. He was just about ready to receive a bone marrow transfer after forcing it into supposed remission through two very aggressive chemo rounds. He passed no later than 5 months from his initial diagnoses. It was incredibly hard to see him in the hospital: frail, scared, and more than anything just terrified to think about the fact that he wouldn't see his daughter graduate college as a D-1 Athlete, or see his youngest son off to his prom and college, or to watch his grandson grow up. It's fucking awful to think about and I still get irate at the whole situation. I am right now. 

It rocked my cousins, and me. I'm the oldest of the grandchildren on that side, and I always had a very different interaction/relationship with him than his children, mostly because my parents were divorced, and he took on a lot of those fatherly duties when my father couldn't be around. I cannot imagine how you feel, but I do know how your loved ones feel. 

All this to say that you should do literally whatever the fuck you want with your time. Your family, friends, and your partner will support you in any choice you make. Take care of the logistics like you said, and then just ball the fuck out. 

Best of luck to you, Rage. And as everyone has said, please please please let all of us know if there is anything we can do, and that extends to your partner as well.

Let's not write him off. Cancer kills, but there's a lot of things that can kill and certainly a lot of people that have survived cancer.

 

I have faith in the exception to every rule and the belief that not everything exists as absolutes. 

 

Keep fighting, don't lose hope. Enjoy every moment, whether its today, next year or a lifetime.
