My Battle with Cancer

Hi all. It has been a while since I had posted but I have been watching a bit from the hospital bed. I had some serious RSI prpblems and went to see a doctor. I had 7 broken vertbrae but diagnois was myloma, a form of bone cancer where the joints are eating away at each other. I had a tumor on my back that needed radiation treatment and is currently being treated. Thank God I can walk. I have been taking dexomethasone treatment but the chemo may start next week.

I am getting a little weak now but some people have been building a network to help me out. I want to thank @khurshid-alam and all others who are currently maintaining unity 18.04.


@dale-f-beaudoin I wish much strength to you and get well soon!


I wish you a real return to health. I wish the myeloma attack would stop growing any further, and stop where it is and minimise its effect on you. I am sending a PM to you. When you have time, please read it.
