Many of you readers
also read Chuck Butler's Daily Pfennig. Here's a
message taken from one of his Pfennigs.
Dear readers... Well, it was June a
few days ago, and the 5 year anniversary of my first
experience with cancer... I had my left kidney removed,
my right hip and femur removed, my left eye removed, and
now 3 teeth, because my jaw has been eaten away with
cancer. I've had chemo, I've had radiation, and still
the "spots" of cancer keep showing up. I used to say
that my nickname was "Lucky"... I truly believe that the
Good Lord has only allowed me to get cancer in places
that I have two of... so far...
Well, it's with this latest news that I have to tell you
that cancer is once again a part of my life, and my
family's life... Not only did the cancer return to my
jaw that received radiation last fall, but now there's a
small mass in my chest that had not grown since its
discovery 2 years ago... But it has now... and so... I
once again ask for your thoughts and prayers to get me
through this next round of Chemo.
I know there are tons of alternative ways to combat
growing tumors that Big Pharma hasn't approved... Over
the years, not only have many of you sent them to me,
but I have researched them to the max... And if this
round doesn't work, then I will begin to look elsewhere.
But I have no doubt this will work, I will beat this,
just like the other episodes of cancer, because I have
too strong of a will to live and see my kids and
grandkids grow.. up. I have the thoughts and prayers of
thousands of people. I have the support of a loving
beautiful bride, and wonderful children... I'll always
have a good attitude, and work ethic to pull me through.
So... I'm at the fork in the road, dear reader... I'm
going to stop, pick it up, and travel down this next
road, all I ask is that you continue to shine the light
I'll be back in the saddle next week... I hope you have
a great day, and remember to hug your family...
