Great to hear Mike!
My brother had cancer 21 yrs ago, and at that time it was one of the rarest cancers around. Only a few people in the world had it. Specialists from
the US came to South Africa to prod and poke him, for "their benefit"
He had his entire right tricep muscle removed, radiation therapy, etc. It was hell. After the ops, Every day for 6 weeks we drove to Pretoria (80km
there one way) and back to Johannesburg for his treatment. His arm looked like a pot roast after the therapy - Just horrible! It was heartbreaking to
see him like that!
Long Story short, he has is own business now in SA, and is flourishing
He is such a great guy, and the bond we have due to that illness has cemented our 'brothership' for life. He is my soulmate. (He in SA, me in Canada
- but we chat EVERY weekend!) Amazing how illness can unite people
Just look at the support here on ATS! What a wonderful community we are. We may have personal differences, but we love each other in every sense of
the word! ATS is just great.
Thanks for sharing your experience with us. I think I speak for all here when I say that you have made us respect and appreciate life Mike!
All the best to you buddy
