Big day tomorrow for my little nephew. 6-12 hour resection surgery to try and remove most of his cancer. The tumor has wrapped around his left kidney and the arteries in that area, so he will most likely lose a kidney during the process. Please keep him in your prayers tonight/tomorrow and hope for a smooth surgery.

2 years ago today, my mom lost her battle with cancer! I think about her everyday. I’m heartbroken she will never get to meet her grandson. Today sucks.

Unfortunately, I’m bumping this thread. Talked to my dad earlier tonight. He was diagnosed with throat cancer today. They are running tests and he starts radiation treatments next week. I lost my mother to cancer and I’m just numb right now.

Sorry to hear this brother, I will be praying for him. It will be some harsh radiation.

A regular playing partner of mine, an older guy, has prostate cancer! Keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

My dad called me at work last night. He received his results from the blood work, biopsies, and PET scan. He has Stage 4 metastatic cancer in his jaw, throat, lymph nodes, both lungs, and chest cavity. They are going to start him on an aggressive course of chemotherapy and radiation on Monday...1-2 chemo treatments a week for a month and 60+ doses of radiation.
My wife and I drove up today to visit with him. Once he starts this treatment, his immune system will be basically non-existent, so he can’t have many visitors, especially during times of Covid.
Because of Covid, my father had yet to meet his newest grandson. I am proud to say that is no longer the case! JBC Jr. and JBCIV!
