Colon Club mentioned in the Miami Herald

Postby GrouseMan » Fri May 22, 2020 10:31 am

FYI an interesting article was run in the Miami Herald in which the Colon Club was mentioned.

Here is the Link:

Enjoy

Great article. Thanks for sharing.
I'm just a dude who still can't believe he had a resection and went through chemo (currently 8 years NED). Is this real life?

I am doing OK. I started dating a breast cancer survivor, and that has made things easier. This is a rough time of year for me. 3rd anniversary of my wife's passing coming up. This Covod-19 stuff is bothersome, but for the most part doesn't effect me much because I continue to work from home, and am pretty well isolated in the first place. But on the other hand all the dog field trials have been canceled, and most of my friends I see at Dog Trials. That makes things difficult. I continue to try and read about interesting treatments, but since Libraries are also closed, it makes it hard to access literature that can't be accessed on line.

Thanks for asking,
