After a little cajolling, I have convinced the CSN that there is a need for a discussion for military cancer survivors. The purpose of this discussion is to give military folks a safe place to go and ask questions about treatment, administrative issues, performance evaluations, etc. that are unique to military cancer survivors. If you or someone you care about are military cancer survivors, stop on over and say "Attention!". I have recruited Kat - a military attorney with 11 years of trial experience and Mike, an oncology nurse (NOT a doctor) to help out with technical stuff. As you may have gathered, I am an old dinosaur myself (23 years E-1 to O-4) with lots of experience at "working the system". We're here to listen, advise, let you vent or kick you in the butt of necessary.

Hoping to hear from you soon - active duty or retirees.

Sign me up! griffinherbert@hotmail.com I am a retired O-3 (Air Force). I did my career backwards; finished up as an E-6 with the Alaska Air National Guard. As a former Navy guy, you may appreciate that I own and operate a North American T-28B. I am a survivor of adnocarcinoma of the esophagus. I had an Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy at UTMDACC (M. D. Anderson) in February 2001. I got my FAA Class II medical back eighteen month later.

over and out.... Lee
