Fellow warriors

I haven't been on much lately because as I have explained in a previous posting it just seems cancer is all around me. I spoke abote one of our secretaries who developed brain cance in March and has sincepassed away and another officer of the local is also battling cancer. Now for another kick in the butt  I was told late this morning I have prostate cancer. The Dr seems to think we caught it early because of the 12 biopsies only one came back positive. This comes the same month six years later after  I was told I had throat cancer. Could not have come at a worse time, in 9 days I go to Tampa for my sons wedding and then next month  two weeks in Hawaii for business and pleasure.

I beat this prick once and have every intention of doing it again. Thanks for listening.

      Jeff

    Dammit Man...

    Dang Jeff....

    I know I had a rough go last year, but you didn't have to one up me.... Thoughts and prayers your way brother... You're tough, it was caught early, and I know a lot that have beat it minimally.

    I believe the biggest part of the early caught is the mind and attitude.. You've been through worse, so I know mentally you can kick it.. Physically you'll do just fine also I'm sure.

    Shoot me a text or email when you're in town.. We'll find something to get in to...

    You got this Jeff.....

    I can feel it.  You're a person who can say "I've kicked bigger cancer butt and won"....and know that it's true.  We're always here, you know that....

    That is rough to hear Jeff...

    Sorry for the news. On the good side it is the most beatable of all the "C" 99.92% you will beat this with out having to try. Will add some more prayers going your way, but try to enjoy the wedding and Hawaii.

    Another bump in the highway

    Another bump in the highway of life. Let your docs worry about your treatment plan while you live it up in not one, but two tropical paradises.

    Cancer sucks

    Hi Jeff 

    i know exactly what you mean.     I haven't been on here for some time but remember all of you guys and gals fondly.   

    I am almost 5 years out from successful tongue cancer treatment and now we are facing my hubby's stage 3 lung cancer.  

    Sounds like your team has a plan in place for you.  I wish you the best.

    i think you and my Ted should jump in Phrannie's pocket for safe keeping !  After Tampa and Hawaii for you.

    I have not posted anything about this anywhere but have told our good friends John and Shelley G.

    I missed your post somehow, actually, I read posts and sometimes comment if I think I can help a little. 

    There's no doubt, you're going to kick cancer's **** again...guess he didn't get the point the first time

    Take care~~

    percentages

    Hey Jeff,

    We always steer folks away from looking at numbers but prostrate treatment is highly successful. So just go give it a real good beat down! Don
