Well guys, long story short I got myself a case of the Cancer. I found 3 large tumors in my throat Jan 1st of 2013 while shaving. I checked the other side and of course there was nothing there. Had them tested 7 months later and they all came back malignant. A couple of you know about this already. I have thyroid Cancer. If it was just regular thyroid Cancer it would be a snap. While this would normally be a 45 minute to 1 hour operation, it is deep in my limp nodes and behind my clavicle. Which they can't get to. Went to a hospital in San Francisco and got the bulk of the bad news. Anyway, I go to the city tomorrow, then the 6 hour surgery is Tuesday at 6am. Then radioactive iodine treatments, and radiation after that. If all that doesn't work, then I was told to get my affairs in order. They gave me a 65% chance of survival. While I wish it was 90%, it's surely better than 30%.
 I know none of you are my personal friends, but just wanted to say... just in case... it has been SO FUN hanging out with you all online. I am sorry if I hurt anybody. Take Care of yourselves and I will hopefully be back online after all this recovery and treatment is done with. Over and out... Danny

Danny,
Even though we don't know each other I have enjoyed many of your comments and posts since being a member here on CRG. I know that you are in a battle but it is a battle that you can win! I have an Uncle that is like a brother to me that is fighting the same battle, so your post touched me. They can do some amazing things these days so keep the faith and hope. As we all get older we start to realize how short life really is so we must enjoy and appreciate each day like it could be our last.
From one Camaro lover to another I want to wish you all the best and Godspeed. Please keep us posted.

God bless, and keep swinging ! Last year one of my co-workers discovered he had it in his gall bladder I believe--thought he was passing a kidney stone. Very stubborn guy..great firefighter ,Lt., husband and father. Gave him very low end on the scale. We heard/read 18-30%. His boy plays b-ball for Ohio State ( he was the one who walked on the court last year during play offs) so he put the surgery off a week or two to watch him play. They were not sure how the surgery would go...this was last year and he is back to work full duty. Cancer and heart attacks hit FF's way above average, the guys I know who immediately addressed the issue head on/ASAP are back to work or enjoying retirement. Mind you he put it off with the ok from the medical team. Keep in touch.

Danny....I understand your anxiety....seven years ago on March 1, I had surgery for late stage prostate cancer.  I still have some anxiety, even today, but I have managed to live an eventful life.  As a brother in the hobby and also as a brother in cancer survival, I hope and pray that you will also conquer and survive your cancer to live a long, eventful life.  Good luck and God bless you and yours.
