rp1954 - I just wanted to add.

I have read your comments on multiple forums (like CSN) posted over the last eight years; like this one eight years back just prior to a surgery. https://csn.cancer.org/node/218056
How valiantly you've fought this deadly disease (as a researcher, caregiver) for/with your wife is an inspiration. I took lessons from your journey which are entirely unrelated to treatment or prognosis. Thank you for that.
