Default Thank you

I never thought I'd be on this side of a help thread. I'm crying as I type this.
I haven't been on much lately because I didn't want to whine. (Thats what FB is for, lol).
I recently finished up a round of treatment for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This was my second bout with it. I was in remission for a bit over a year. I'm in relatively good health now. I am in remission again and don't have to see my oncologist for a few weeks unless I start feeling ill. The first time around I had pretty good health insurance and made it through OK. This round not so much. As mentioned in the fundraiser thread I've had to let some things go. My lease, my Harley, my bow. Well, I did manage to hang on to my trad bow.
Your help is very difficult for me to accept and when Alan asked if I would accept it I almost said no. But honestly I've been struggling. I filed chapter 13 bankruptcy so I don't lose my house. My pride has taken a hell of a beating. I would never have spoken up. Razorback 01 called me checking up on me because I've been a ghost. And thats how all this started. Thank you Doug, and thank you Alan.
As hard as things have been for me I'm actually a very lucky man. My oncologist told me that if you're going to have cancer this is the one you want. It is the easiest to treat. So many are in much worst shape than I am.
I love you guys and gals.

I know it's just words typed here and sometimes they sound hollow, but I mean it from the most sincere part of me, if you need anything, don't hesitate to reach out. Don't let pride hold you back. There's a difference in a hand UP and a hand OUT. You know which one you are.

You sound like a great man! You will beat this! My dad had lymphoma 30+ years ago and is doing great. Only goes back to doctor once every 5 years or so. You have the right attitude, and that’s what they told my dad was the most important part. Praying for strength, comfort, perseverance, financial blessings, and Gods supernatural guidance, protection, and complete and supernatural healing in your life. Praying all this through our mighty Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

I had an old fella tell me one time. This is especially true for you with the blessings you have bestowed upon many folk that has been told many times here already.
“Don’t take the blessings and pleasures away from the people that are wanting to help you during these times. Let these people help you.”

Continued prayers.

You are in my prayers, may the Lord bless you with keeping this in remission so that like an earlier thread said, his Dad has had it for 30 years. You definitely have the right attitude, hang in there blessings wait you.

I never thought of it like that. As men most of us don't ever ask for help. I guess that stubborn pride is in our DNA. There is a joy to giving, and helping others. I've experienced it many times myself. I hope you accept the fact that you are actually blessing others by allowing them to help you in your time of need. God bless you. I pray for continued success with your fight against cancer.



Cancer sux!
