    Thumbs up I'm a Poster Boy!

    In other news, I'm a Poster Boy! There's a website called Ihadcancer.com, that of course also has a facebook page, and they are doing this thing where they encourage cancer patients/survivors to say "5 words to cancer," as part of their effort to be part of a support system for people who have or had cancer. So you send in your 5 words and a pic, and they make it into a poster kinda thingy they put in the photos section.

    Here's mine:



    The actual page on the fb site is here:
    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=422744007793588

    If anybody here is a cancer survivor or knows one, I would encourage you (or them) to do this. It's easy, and if it makes one person have a better day it's worth it.

    Thanks fellers. That sh*t can be pretty rough and I guess some might consider that sorta thing kinda hokey, but when you're going through it, support from others who have also done it can be helpful. I know I spent some time in the "Head and Neck" cancer forum at the Am. Cancer Society's Cancer Survivors' Network online during my treatment, and am in a similar facebook group still.

    FWIW, I don't consider that 'hokey' at all

    Good stuff. Spread the word. Stay strong.

    As a co-worker/cancer survivor once told me: "Cancer is my *****!"
    Nothing is anything until it is written. After that, it's everything.

    Haha, there is at least one website that riffs on "Eff You, Cancer!" too.

    Freakin' AWESOME, Brian!

    If there's anything in the world that deserves "the finger," it's cancer.
