“To all concerned I was diagnosed Nov.14 w Lymphoma cancer which now am on my 3rd treatment 3 to go Of Chemo which is shrinking the rapid growing tumors.Doc told me yrs ago I have blockage in my artery so here we are an have lost 45 percent of my heart use.Also he said I have lots of head,body trauma.Doc said I had a heart attack some time back an didn’t know it.Have felt bad for awhile now but thought I was getting old, lol. This is not fatal as its between my Pancreas,Colon,neck.A big TY to all of u but I look at it as getting a tube up,overhaul,tires rotated,oil change,etc.all in one lol.
