Thank you for all your help

Postby Tueffel » Tue Jan 11, 2022 2:13 pm


I wanted to thank all members here who helped and responded to my posts.

Unfortunately, my Papa passed away 26th November 2021. I know nobody wants to read these news.
My Papa had a type of colon cancer that was just too aggressive, too fast, too resistant to treatment. Even his oncologists were surprised about this cancer. I hope that Papa signed everything necessary in his lifetime that doctors will find a cure against this cancer. I hope that many will get thecure, or a stable disease for many years. I hope less and less people will die due to that terrible disease.

Hopefully from June 2022, I will be a resident doctor. Papa will see it in heaven.

I wish you all good luck, keep fighting, never give up. Dont get encouraged by my dads fate.
