Newly diagnosed 7 years ago !

Postby justin case » Sat Nov 17, 2018 6:35 pm

Seven years ago I bought a new house, Yay! 4 months later I was diagnosed with colon and rectal cancer ? With the help of many on this website, I managed to get through treatment, gained stability, and made it to retirement ! I prayed a little for my wife to be financial free, That has happened ! There is no way I can thank the many who had my back through my struggles, and I can't say enough how much this website helped me , Thank You !
Warm Regards,
Michael.... Bro Nut

When I first came here, I didn't know the subject very well ! I joined just in case I needed the advice, and was glad I did !

To all, Thank You ! Going through Cancer treatment is never easy ! One day I almost died, not wanting to go to the ER. It appeared I was in renal failure , the day before my birthday. With the support of many, especially those who had a sense of humor, I made it through. I tried to help where I could, also sometimes less serious about some situations . To those who know me well, we all made it thus far, at least 7 years, when our prognosis was based on 5 ! I always base my thoughts on the positive side, the negative is sometimes inevitable ! I've lost more than a few friends here !
Thank you for your good wishes,

Michael
