Not sure if everyone is aware but we've lost our friend Scambuster. Apparently he has been censored/banned from this board. I'm not sure exactly why but my guess is that he might have posted one too many times about alternatives to conventional cancer treatment and the conventional diet that is recommended by most oncologists. I've seen plenty of recommendations for chemo, radiation, ensure, boost, jevity, opiates, benzo's and even milkshakes and candy on this board since I first came here a year ago. Never once have I seen anybody respond in anger to those recommendations though I have seen plenty of angry responses to recommendations for a sugar free, dairy free, organic, plant-based diet and alternative cancer treatments that might compliment chemo, surgery and radiation. I even witnessed someone from another board chase Scam over here because he didn't agree with his findings. Why would someone with a cancer other than H&N even be on this board?
But that's not really what I wanted to talk about. I just wanted to acknowledge the absence of someone who encouraged me when I was fearful, gave me well researched information when I needed it and who has been a source of wisdom and hope on this board and has contributed to the health of countless brothers and sisters who have been impacted by H&N cancer. He will be missed.
With sadness and frustration,
