Well,...Spent this past week in the finast institution in America. Yale New-Haven Smilow cancer hospital. Short story. Near total loss of right arm. 70% loss of left. Clots in arm and lungs. Tumor growth from base of brain to about T-2 down spinal canal. Around some nerve roots. And rt. brachial plexus. Did not expect to be here anymore. Bottom line, Radiation, votrient, steroids, anti co-agulants. First of 10 radiation treatments done. Return as op Monday-fri. for 2 weeks. Fatigue to the nth degree for hours after trying to shower and dress this am. Will post as capable. Not likely to keep up with everyones posts. I apologize. See you toward the other end. Whichever one it is.

Fox loves you.

Foxy, this is really tough to read. I know you have been going through so much. And with such strength and dignity. I hope you will go through this and become pain free and symptom free along with NED. You will be in my thoughts and prayers, and I know everyone here will be sending their good karma your way!

You have given so much to us....your support, guidance, advice, hope, laughter, friendship....and a little talking to every once in a while.  Laughing I always think of you when someone asks me how I am, and when I am not feeling that wonderful....I remember your wise words, and I always put on a smile and answer "GREAT!".

Please know how much you are loved, and may your journey be made a little easier knowing we love and support you and think of you always. You will get through this. I know what a fighter you are. Hoping you will be posting on here again very soon.

Much love - and big hugs

Fox, you’re one of my heroes and greatest inspiration for this board. I’m so sorry you’re going through this; I can’t describe how awful I feel for you. You’re one the greatest encouragers and positive thinkers on this board and this really sucks. No other word for it. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you that all the treatments prescribed will work their magic. Karma will surely reflect back upon you. If anyone deserves good Karma it’s you.

will you be getting the high dose radiation? This should give you some much-needed pain relief.

The loss of strength in your arms really sucks; is this expected to improve? And, as far as the votrient, it is looking like after having the IL2, these drugs work well. Thatch is having some good results with it.

When I first logged onto this forum last August I was feeling pretty low. I had just been diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer. One of the first to greet me was the Fox. He gave me some much needed hope and encouragement both publicly and privately. I don't know what I would have done without his support. It hurts to hear what he is going through now but I know that that he is not one to back down from a fight. I thank you for everything you did for me and wish you nothing but the best as we battle this monster. Kick butt.

I haven't been on the boards lately, but when I do come on, I always look for you, Fox.  No, I'm not a stalker, it's just that like everyone else here I think of you as our very own Action Figure in the fight against cancer so I look  for your inspirational posts.  So sorry to hear of the turn of events, but if anyone can get through this, YOU can.  During this difficult time try to do more of what makes you happy, like watching long movies while sipping milk shakes (or margaritas!) with a straw.  

Fox, the rest of us many not be able to stop the downpour, but we'll sure be  with you to walk in the rain!  And remember, one step backward just means you're doing the cha-cha.

I have no words to express the shock when I read this.  I'm so pissed at cancer!  You're the strongest person on this board and if anyone can kick cancer's *** it's The Fox!  I'm praying for you.

Just sign into CSN - I just feel like I have been kicked in the gut. This really, really sucks!


Wishing you the best Fox.  If it’s worth mentioning I was on Votrient for almost 2 ½ years with very good results. I would just like you to know that your success with BMS-936558/Nivolumab and IL-2 inspired me to really push my oncologist hard to search for a PD-1 clinical trial for me. Thanks to you, I am now in a clinical trial with of Keytruda/ Pembrolizumab in combination with an investigational drug INCB24360.  It would not have happened without the encouragement I felt by reading your posts Fox. I would just like to say that you have been a true inspiration to all of us on CSN. Fox, I am not a praying man but I will seriously be praying for you. Hoping for the absolute best for you man. - BDS

It's like those cheesy horror movies where the bad guy makes one last attempt to get the hero...

Go ahead and finish him off for good.

Dam Cancer.  The mascot is the beaver.

Somehow, I sensed something was happening in CT, but not what I wanted or expected.  You absolutely know that my thoughts, prayers, and hugs are being sent thru ice and snow and rain to reach you.

Luv, Donna

Fox, I am so sorry to read this.  You, as others have stated, were one of the first to post when I joined.  I am sending up prayers for you and hoping you can continue to fight the good fight for a while longer.

Fox.. I knew something wasn't right because I didn't see you on here much.  I am so sorry to hear all of this happening. What are they doing for the brain stem met, besides radiation?  I know you are tough and I know you will come through this too!  Praying for you and for your strength and recovery.  Any idea why they have you on blood thinners and you still have clots?  I hate this darn disease. I find it so unreal that with all the research and technology, they still don't have a cure.  I can't grasp that!  In any case, i am constantly thinking of you!  I hope you do well with the Votrient, keep an eye on the blood pressure.  What level did they start you at? I would suggest the lower the dose the better.  Maybe 400 mgs, but i know they always start and the top and taper you down.

Now, this thing about Bruce Jenner.. are you staying away because he seems to be a bad driver, or is it because he wears pink lipstick?  I applaud you for deciding on that route! Feel better! Hugs and love!  XXOO

I read your post Fox on the 7th, and have had you on my mind ever since.  I was completely surprised and at a loss for words.  I think if anyone can beat this thing, it is you.  You and your wife will be in my thoughts and prayers.   I was thinking that you are blessed in that you have always had great confidence and faith in the folks that are currently treating you.  it's a good place to be mentally and physically, to have that kind of faith in your team.  Thankyou for writing to all of us at csn.  You are definetly well loved and respected.  Good luck with your treatment.     annie

You are in my prayers. I MUST say thank you for all the peace you have brought to me. You may not have always been speaking to me, but more often than not, it felt like you were. You have a special way of reaching out and making me feel like I can also fight a little harder or dig a little deeper.

I will always be greatful for the wisdom you have shared. To this day, I use your "we could all get hit by a bus tomorrow" story.

Be well my friend!
