Sounds like you are giving this thing your best shot. Best of luck from another Cancer survivor, I remember how exhausted I was during my Chemo treatments.

So sorry to hear of your misfortune.  I haven't chatted with you in ages, but I have always admired your intelligence, resourcefulness and honesty.  Hoping and praying you and your team whip those cancers into remission.  Please check in from time to time when you have the energy bro.

I lost three people close to me to cancer and my friend, there are simply not enough words in the universe that I can put together to convey my sympathy and best wishes for you.

Reading about people going through absolute hell like this, always puts things in a healthy perspective.
