I Don’t Believe in Coincidences

Just a quick update, as it has been some time since my last post. My cancer is back. I am 39. I have Myeloma (maybe Multiple, not sure yet). Again. And, in spite of the fact that I stepped up when my country asked me to – and more than likely developed cancer as a result – my country is nowhere in sight when it comes to stepping up to help me deal with the personal and financial cost of my illness. Right now I have a tumor in the soft tissue in my eye. I will find out in the next few weeks if I have tumors elsewhere, and what course of treatment is best for me. In the meantime, my eye is deformed and the tumor continues to grow aggressively. I have limited sight out of my eye. I (and by “I”, I mean my father) just spent over $3,000 to have the tumor biopsied (and my eyelid flayed open). Oh, and I might die from this (but I’m getting used to dealing with that anxiety).
