Hello Guys - Sue here. I just received a call from my daughter -in-law. she said to try the Cancer Center of Amer. in Zion, Illinois. She said that this is a place for advanced cancer patients. Is anyone formiliar with this canter?

We are hanging in there!!! Bob is doing aobut the same. He is getting out more now then he was which I am happy for. The warm weather helped alot!!! When I came home from work I found him beating up on wild rose bushes in the field. I asked him how he was doing and he said getting my work out in my home made gym. I tried sponge bob to get him to go but he looked at me like I was crazy of had lost my mind for asking. Something must of worked as he was outside for the last 2 days which was a big change.

If anyone can give me any info on this center it would be a big help.

Thank You for being there for us!!!!

Prayer and Best Wishes to everyone!!!

Sue

Yes Sue, there are 3 Cancer Centers of America. One outside of Chicago, one in Washington State and one in Texas. The book you see so many of us recommend "Beating Cancer with Nutrition" was written by Dr. Patrick Quillan who happens to be their Nutritional Director. They have web sites with all the info you could need for each one. Just search on Cancer Centers of America.

Check it out and the very best of luck to you.

OK, Sue... time to bring out the big guns...

I was hoping I wouldn't have to stoop to this level to motivate him to go to the gym, but it looks like I will... 6 words of encouragement to get him to the gym:

Hot, sweaty women in short shorts.

(it worked for me...)

Cheers!

Sponge Bob, I even tried that route and you know what he said, It doesn't work anymore. I told him that there are alot of young girls there. But he said no good as he can barely find it anymore. I'm sorry that I just can't seem to get him up and around. His friends have been stopping by trying to get him out of the house with no luck. I am at a loss right now but am not giving up. He might want a divorce but the time I get him up and around. All he wants is peace and quite. I am not giving up on him. I will get his goat one of these time and he will get mad again!!!
