Good luck, best wishes and prayers for you.

Like Churchill said "If you are going through hell- keep going"
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.

First, I want to say that for years this forum community has been a pleasure and my place to go to discuss things Spyderco and others. You all are my virtual brothers and sisters and frankly life would be impoverished without you. Your past support has been welcome and nourishing. Thank you all.

I’ve been maintaining with my cancer for over a year with simple hormone treatments but now I will be starting chemo next week in Denver. What I have isn’t curable but with work manageable for a time. Now, more work is called for. I’m a fighter and this is another tool in the box.

A good thing is I should be able to visit SFO on one of my trips.

Everyone stay healthy and get your regular check ups.

I’m making every day a good day.
My thoughts are with you Michael! Been fighting an incurable rare cancer for a while now....your positive attitude and lust for life will serve you well.

If you ever need someone to talk to about the different side effects or symptoms of your chemo treatments. ...shoot me a PM !

Fought the same fight several times, one day I will have to again. Do your best to stay positive, as every day above ground is a good day.
