Starting treatment on Monday - 05-03-2019, 05:28 AM

Since Garczar first posted the thread about my being diagnosed with throat cancer, numerous people here, most of whom I do not know, even casually, have reached out in the thread with encouragement and best wishes. There is no way I can really describe how much that has meant to me. And, again, my thanks go out to everyone for the kind words and other things as well. I have also received many private messages with those same encouragements and best wishes. Due to so many of those, and so many here in the forum itself, I am going to let everyone know, here, that I am starting chemo and radiation treatments ( at one of the most highly rated cancer hospitals in the country, which I am lucky enough to have within driving distance ) on Monday. 6 weeks of radiation 5 days a week and chemo, weekly, for 6 weeks as well.

It's going to be a bumpy flight. But I'll do what needs done, then I'll move on with my life.

Many of you expressly asked me for updates and for that reason, mainly, I am posting this. I deeply appreciate everyone's attitudes, feelings and thoughts. Thank you all.


So... here we go. Off to see the wizard.

Hang in there it’s a tough road but you can do it. My father in law has survived 2 battles with cancer. He had surgery on the same exact day 19 years apart. He also still works a full time job at nearly 70 years old. Hope this gives you some encouragement.

Somehow I missed the information but wish you the best on getting better. It will be a tough journey but if you stay strong I feel you can't beat anything.
