Kidney Cancer (12 Hr. Surgery), Colon Cancer, Melanoma (Cost me a piece of my arm). All now over 5 years ago and all in complete remission!
Currently worrying about Prostate Cancer.

Early detection is a key!

So also is the power of a lot of prayers!

God is the great physician who holds us all in his loving arms.

I believe it does. Some of us get so wrapped up in our jobs and racing that we forget about our health, until it's too late ...When you finally realize that you are not YOUNG anymore it's a good idea to visit the doctor and schedule that blood test. At age 50 it's Colonoscopy time unless you are TOO MACHO to allow the doc to place that scope up your rear....I know legendary football coach Vince Lombardi wouldn't allow it so he checked out early. Always out of breath and tire easily, you might want to share that with the doctor on your next visit.....All our race cars require maintenance from time to time,....Well, so do we.....

"Whoever said winning doesn't matter, never had to fight cancer"

A good motto to live by, we do. My wife is on her 3rd session with cancer that started in 2003 with breast cancer, beat it. In late 2006 or early 2007 she developed issues with her back (cancer again), beat it. In 2013? she again had to start dealing with that dreaded cancer demon. This time it is in her bones, and the doctors are doing the best to control it so she can have as good a life as possible.

Her prognosis is good as possible, but we all know it will claim her at some point. We live life one day at a time and enjoy everything so much more now.

If you guys and gals remember I did a thread in late 2015 Carguy 49's Road Trip. We have taken a few smaller trips since then, but she doesn't travel as well as she used to.

Our 20th Anniversary is July 27th and her 65th Birthday is Sept. 9th. Out next 2 goals. Yes, we have more after that. A good friend's daughter is getting married next summer, also on the list.

I get to the races as much as I can to visit with friends and the support from them is outstanding. Keep my wife in your prayers and God Bless ALL of you.


P.S. To answer the thread question - - YES, People beat cancer all the time, NEVER give up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My wife was diagnosed at the early age of 31 and is now 11 years clear (Breast) stay positive and surround yourself with a good support team and don't give up no matter how tough it gets. Good Luck to you and your family.

I was treated for prostate cancer in 2015 that the VA recognizes as an Agent Orange related disease. Everything been good so far, doctors were great but the toughest part is deciding on your treatment. I had a few choices and there's pros and cons no matter which way you go.

Ditto all the way. My diagnosis was last Winter and surgery about a year ago. Just started the follow-up hormone therapy in preparation for a seven week shot of radiation treatments in late August. My behavior has been a bit strange with the hormone treatments, but my PSA remains below 0.05.

D6 guys: If I show up with my Stronger than Cancer or radioactive themed t-shirt, now you know what's up.
