It was one year ago today that I had my bioposy done. On November 3rd I was diagnosed with TC. Did 3 rounds of chemo (BEP) or 10 rounds with Jose Cuervo as I like to call it....Luckily no surgery was needed. I had my 6 month check up, CT scan back in Sept. and all is still clear. THANK GOD!! I go back for another checkup on December 20th. I feel like I my body is running at full strength again. I'm playing hockey 2 nights a week and running again.

Dave,
GREAT IDEA!!! I am glad to hear you are doing well. I can't imagine going through a 2nd battle with TC. Once was enough for me.

p.s.- real name is Billy, I like slapshot for screen name. I am a hockey nut. I played in college and in the AHL when I was younger.

Congrats, Billy!

I am glad that you mentioned that you've played at a professional level before I did something stupid like challenge you to a shootout. :o)

By your screen name, I assume you are a goalie?? I'm a defenseman, not much of a goal scoreer, just a cannon of a shot from the blueline. The AHL was much different in late eighties early nineties than it is today. Playing in college was one of the best times of my life.
