Be Like Mitch

It’s been a week since the passing of Mitch Kline. I’ve wanted to write a few words this week but no clear thought found its way out of my head. But I’ll ramble for the sake of rambling and because I need to. Mitch was a friend to all and a dear friend and supporter [...]

2016 Chemo Round 3

For those of you keeping score at home…round 3 of chemo concluded today without any issues. My blood counts were good and I continue to both respond and tolerate treatment pretty well.  I haven’t slept yet since yesterday due to the beauty and curse of my favorite (said nobody ever) steroid decadron but sleeping is [...]

It was a Good Day

It was a good day yesterday. It was a really good day. Starting with a great mid-cycle check up with my oncolodoc. Blood levels look good, lymph nodes are retreating, and I am tolerating treatment very well. I wish I could put his reaction in a bottle for future use. He was genuinely  happy and [...]

Cancer’s Give and Take

Many of you have heard me say in the past that cancer has created more opportunities than it has taken away opened more doors that it has closed. You’ve probably heard me say that and dismissed me as a crazy man with delusional perspectives on life. I won’t deny that crazy claim from time to [...]

2016 Chemo Round 2, Day 2

And BOOM, another round is in the books. I hit the rack pretty early last night after a full day of treatment and believe it or not actually got a little rest. I drifted off and on because the steroid decadron had me racing but I quieted myself enough to feel rested. Then bounced up [...]

Whatever Normalcy Is

I’m gradually realizing that I really don’t like the side effects associated with my treatment meds. Fatigue and shortness of breath with activity are not exactly conducive to supporting a running and multisport lifestyle. I know the effects from the treatment are temporary. And I’m thankful that they are indeed working. This is evidenced by [...]

Cancer Warrior Episode

I recently sat down with Mel Majoros of The Cancer Warrior blog fame and talked about relapsing, treatment, racing, and the cancer warrior mentality. Give it a listen HERE.

LLS, TNT, & SSB

I feel like this recent relapse and treatment has further strengthened my relationship with Team in Training and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I don’t know if strengthened is the right word, perhaps validated is or fortified. Whatever the word is… it all feels even more connected. I’ve been symptomatic all year to varying degrees. [...]
