    Hey Eph, its not your time until god calls you home, don't worry about the numbers and keep your spirits up man. On that note, can we use the TW donation fund to hire this man either one 100 dollar prostitute or 2 50 dollar prostitutes as a get well soon card?

    Thanks and an update.
    As mentioned I started with a new immunotherapy. Like most of these immunotherapies, this one breaks the bond between the PDL1 protein and the cancer cells. (The PDL1 protein binds and hides the cancer cells from being ‘seen’ by our bodies immune defense system.) On Tuesday and after being treated since April, the affect lymph nodes have shrunk by 50%. While my oncologist is not calling this a full remission, it is very good news.


    My wife is pissed, she was hoping for the insurance money. LOL


    On the down side, this new immunotherapy drug is outrageously expensive. It is $33,800 per dose (infusion every 21 days). My insurance is only willing to pay about $8,000 per dose so I had to get accepted in the drug company’s ‘compassion’ program so they are covering the extra costs.


    So to those players who have been PMing me to with ‘hope your cancer kills you’…. bite me.

    I have no idea, they were aliased under some random name. About a week ago some player (on my frequency) started PMing me things like, ‘aren’t you dead yet’ and ‘hasn’t that cancer killed you off yet’. When I ?ignored they simply logged back in under another random name. I literally had not typed a single word the entire session so I am unsure of the motivation. No worries, it is what it is.
