    For selfish, personal reasons, I have deliberately avoided this thread. It is so inspiring to read how you are dealing with your cancer and I pray for your recovery.

    My personal reasons for avoiding this thread is that cancer has hit my family hard in the past five years. My younger sister passed away at 41 from cancer. A niece had to have a double masectomy after the birth of her first child. She is 26. My mother in law succumbed to lung cancer two years ago and my older sister has been fighting small cell cancer for the past year. I just got the call that she has, at best, a few months left.

    My sister has not had your faith and hopeful demeaner. I wish she had and pray she come to terms with her fate. I just wanted to let you know why I was neglegent. Not a very good excuse, but it's all I've got. I will start another thread about my sister now. Thanks for your inspiration during your having to deal with cancer. It helped me better understand my sister's situation.

    Good morning, Bret and everyone!

    Welcome, Robin.

    If there is one thing I have noticed about cancer, it is a highly individualized experience. So many variables of diet, environment, immune system response, and the area of rogue cells themselves. Maybe that's why it has been tough to find a cure.

    BUT, I do believe that we will find a cure. Every day we are one step closer.

    I'm not so sure we can ever cure our arrogance in thinking we are so intelligent that we can produce products that seem to help us while in fact they wind up killing us in different ways. If we find a cure for cancer, some other blight will crop up to show us how insignificant we truly are.

    In the meantime, I hope and pray for a cure for fcs and others who are affected at the moment.

    There is a world renown Cancer Research Clinic in Vancouver.....and there has been a number of news show segments done on this week.....and the usually very conservative doctors are saying that they feel they are very close as they are mapping what actually happens inside the cells....then can take precise directive action to redirect those cells to re-align their growth/malignant/abhorrent consequential behaviour. I was thinking of trying to get the full weeks video and posting it........
    Good Morning Muricans......late today off up the mountain......be talking you your friend Art in a half hour.....

    On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month we shall remember them.....Lest We Forget.....

    Written by a Canadian doctor in 1919...

    In Flanders fields the poppies grow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.





    Bow your heads today guys at 11am and give a thanx for what we have as a result of the sacrifices of those serving past and present; here and no longer here, that sacrificed for all others.....thinking not of themselves.....

    Doug,

    I've heard that poem before.

    It really struck a chord with me this morning. Thank you for posting it again. I shared it on my Facebook, giving credit, of course, to the author, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.

    Well, guys, I'm off to see my father one last time.

    Keep it moving, please,



    It is the VETERAN , not the preacher,

    Who has given us freedom of religion.

    It is the VETERAN , not the reporter,

    Who has given us freedom of the press.

    It is the VETERAN , not the poet,

    Who has given us freedom of speech.

    It is the VETERAN , not the campus organizer,

    Who has given us freedom to assemble.

    It is the VETERAN , not the lawyer,

    Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

    It is the VETERAN , not the politician,

    Who has given us the right to vote.



    It is the VETERAN ,

    Who salutes the Flag,



    It is the veteran ,

    Who serves under the Flag,



    ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM.



    I don't usually suggest that many emails be forwarded, but I'd be EXTREMELY proud if this one reached as many as possible. We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.

    God Bless them all!!!
