    F**k Cancer

    by Daenerys » Sat Aug 23, 2014 5:16 pm

    Hey Everyone,

    It seems like almost every year something bad has happened to one of our forumites. Unfortunately, this has turned out to be our year. On August 4th Brian was diagnosed with testicular cancer during what was supposed to be a routine outpatient surgery. Because it has spread to some of his lymph he will have to have 12 weeks of chemotherapy :cry: We are remaining positive because this is typically a very treatable and often curable cancer, but it will be a difficult road ahead. He is scheduled to begin chemotherapy on September 8th and continue until November 25th, so we will not be able to attend Progpower and will miss seeing those of you who are going very much. We are hopeful that if his treatment goes as planned and his blood counts rebound well that we will still be on the boat in 2015 and be able to celebrate a victory over cancer with all of you :bangers:




    (P.S. - If anyone is looking for Progpower, King Diamond Atlanta or Orlando Slayer tickets PM Brian or myself).
    I want what we've never had!

    Fuck cancer, indeed. :|

    There is not much to say, but if there is anything we can do to help, even if it is just sending silly photos, do let us know. Hopefully, we'll be celebrating how much Brian kicked cancer's ass on the boat. Meanwhile, if possible, keep us posted.

    Damn. Being diagnosed with cancer is one of the most frightening news one can get. And even if the prognosis is good, it is one rough treatment.
    My thoughts are with you two, and, yes, we'll have a few nice beers in January after Brian kicks cancer's ass.

    I'm still kinda shocked that you have to go through this! I'm so glad that it's treatable and often cureable, which makes me stay positive, too! You'll beat that SOB! I wish you a 'quick' and full recovery and the least uncomfortable time possible! Hope to see you soon in good health!

    So pissed to discover this thread. No way for me to say more than what's already been said but I love you guys both and am confident all will be well if not necessarily easy. Lots of positive metal thoughts coming your way in the weeks to come. Fight hard, push through and kick that fucker to the dirt.

    Just run this mantra through your head every morning when you wake up.

    "The task ahead of you is never greater than the strength within you"

    This has helped me through many marathon races and can be applied to everyday struggles. Positive thinking produces positive results!

    So sorry to read this. :(
    My thoughts are with both of you. :)
    I have a dear friend who was diagnosed with cancer about a year ago. Since then she had surgery & chemo and is now 100% cancer-free! Yes, it was not pleasant and took some time away from her enjoying life's activities, but she's a survivor and that's what matters now. And you will be a survivor too - believe it with every sinew of your being. :)
    I'll never understand the rhyme or reason behind these things (if there is any at all). All I can say is that you have to keep rising above whatever negative gets thrown your way in life & just keep on truckin' as best you can!
    (Haha - you may remember I love a lot of old r & b /soul music from the 60s & 70s)!
    Keep on truckin'!! http://youtu.be/ahkKwYjH_xk
    :P

    Wow, I just popped in here randomly today and saw this. I was thinking about you guys recently because I almost went to the Overkill show in Tampa and was wondering if I would run into you there...

    Very sorry to hear this, but I hope the treatment is going well.

    Stay strong man! You'll beat that cancer bitch down into submission!!
    Have a good time...all the time.

    If everything continues to go as planned, the end of this week means that Brian has just finished a third of his chemo!! :D

    Wow, just popped in and saw this. Lots of love and strength to both of you, sounds like this thing is rearing the end with chemo almost done - kick its ass, Brian.

    I can promise some really great hugs for you both at the end of the tunnel in January when all of this is behind you! Seriously, ALL OF THE HUGS.

    Thanks yet again everyone for the support and replies! Oh man I forgot all about that first year picture haha, seeing that brought a pretty big smile to both of our faces. Some of us look quite different now haha. I cannot wait to see everyone and just have a great time on the cruise!

    My last chemo day is this coming Tuesday :death: My tumor markers are very very good so everything did what it should. Im fighting a bitch of a cold right now but everything else is going as planned and im almost done!
