Cancer. My wife has, or hopefully by now, had Cancer.
See that To Do List in the picture at the right there? That's how awesome my wife is. This is her list for the day of the surgery that would remove organs and important stuff and lay her up for many weeks.
God forbid one should enter a major surgery with a messy bathroom or unkempt toenails. This is just how my wife rolls and I think she's awesome.
It's been a crazy several months since this Cancer was picked up by the lab during a routine check up. This was then followed by a PET scan, a surgical procedure and then another more major surgery.
School was starting soon for the kids, my wife is embarking on a new career and had classes all week. I needed to prep and attend the BUILD conference, be in the keynote, host 4 hours of live TV, plus deliver two talks. Just to make the point - life was happening when Cancer happened.
Let me tell you, Cancer is damned inconvenient when you're trying to live your life. It blindsided us completely but we continued to manage all our commitments while our little boys played and danced even though "mommy had a tummy-ache."
As of today there will be checkups every 3 months for some years. We think it's all handled and gone but now we wait. We wait five years, in fact, because that's when Cancer People graduate and get the "cancer-free" label.
I asked my wife when we could get her an "I beat Cancer" T-Shirt. She said that it's a little early. I may just buy a "She beat Cancer ->" shirt for myself and stand next to her.
They took so much out of her it hurts me to think about it. Weeks later, dressed to the nines for the family Christmas party but with a hidden catheter bag on her leg, I've never been prouder of her strength and patience. Two months into various side effects while she is at a low point I am reminded she is only human, and as fragile as I. We're both a mess but we're together.
She's handling this whole thing with grace and aplomb and I'm so proud of her. If I could have taken it away and been the one that had Cancer (I always see the C as a Capital C when I say Cancer in my head) I would have.
The boys don't know anything about this, but perhaps 5 years from now we'll tell them that Mommy beat Cancer when they were younger. Even better if in 5 years medicine will find a way to keep Cancer from needing a Capital C.
Why am I telling you this, Dear Reader? Because we found this on a regular checkup. Please, get whatever regular screenings are appropriate for your age and gender. If you haven't been to the doctor in years, go today. These things are easier to beat when they are found early.
Let's hope that 2013 is an easier year.
UPDATE: A number of kind people have asked about funds and bills. We are fortunate to have insurance and will be able to pay our bills. If you want to help, please read Troy Howell's family's story and donate. He will die soon and they are raising money to cover the funeral costs and medical bills. http://www.troyhowellcancerfund.com
UPDATE #2: My wife and I have taken 6 months of our personal audio Cancer Diary and turned it into an episode of This Developer's Life. We hope you enjoy it.
Scott Hanselman is a former professor, former Chief Architect in finance, now speaker, consultant, father, diabetic, and Microsoft employee. He is a failed stand-up comic, a cornrower, and a book author.
3 years ago, they diagnosed my fiance and she needed several surgeries to remove the cysts that her body had developed over the years. Even if it turned out that those cysts were benign, it took so much out of her and us.
I would like to repeat what you said:
PLEASE, GET WHATEVER REGULAR SCREENINGS ARE APPROPRIATE FOR YOUR AGE AND GENDER. IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN TO THE DOCTOR IN YEARS, GO TODAY. THESE THINGS ARE EASIER TO BEAT WHEN THEY ARE FOUND EARLY.
I'm happy to hear she's on her way to beat this thing for good; let her know I'm cheering for her.
I wish your family all the best.
PS: I just found myself a really good reason not to complain today.
Mo and Scott, you are both awesome.
I really wish Mo and You the strength to pull through this. From the post it looks like half the battle has been won, may Mo go on and win the war! We all know you will be her trusty lieutenant all the way through.
Not sure if it makes sense but as your fans and well wishers we are with you.
Wishing Mo best of health in 2013.
but now i have to tell you
I would like to wish all the best in these hard times and hope your wife gets well soon
and also to my love , she have cancer toooooooooooo :'(
And thanks for the very important reminder to get in for those routine checkups.
For me this XKCD explains to people who haven't had to deal with cancer personally what it means to have had cancer and why you are in remission not 'cured'.
Hope the final verdict is that she's got a negative result and here's hoping all the checkups to come are negative as well
god bless you
I'm wishing you all the best.
Let's all kick c in the butt in 2013!
My Leukaemia (CML) was spotted on a regular blood donation (some 6+ years ago), I hadn't felt particularly ill or anything, and being a bloke I probably would have waited till my spleen ruptured before considering to go and see the doctor.
As it was, a few days after my failed donation I was sat in the doctors being told I had Leukaemia and without treatment I had 1 year or so to live. Luckily with some light chemo and various medications I am still here, and lead a pretty normal life.
Scott I wish you and your wife all the best (from a fellow Microsoftie blogger), and I can appreciate that sometimes it is just as hard (if not harder) for the partner of a Cancer patient to deal with the whole C thing
Thanks for being such an inspiration.
The Hanselminutes with Mo are some of my favourites, and I'm looking forward to your book.
Take care of each other. And I hope to God Scott that you don't feel guilty if you need to slow down your usual pace.
This blog post moved me deeply, and all my fingers are crossed for your wife and your entire Family!
I lost my uncle to Cancer just 3 months ago, and he was diagnosed with Cancer only 2 months before that. It has been so painful to watch him deteriorate so fast, and the effects of his illness on his family and friends was crushing. The experience has changed me, and I can only try to imagine the toll it must take, when Cancer strikes your significant other.
All my sympathy and respect to you and your wife, and I wish for you to have beaten the Cancer!
Thanks for all you've given to the technical community. I truly pray a full recovery over your wife (and you) and that there will be no trace of cancer left and that you and your wife have many decades of marriage and life ahead of you together.
Another long-time reader. All the best to your wife and family chap.
All the best,
touched by your sharing. The best thing about Cancer is it can teach you really quickly where life is at...your family and closest friends.
I wanted to briefly share a story of my own:
I noticed my TESTICLE was harder than normal and irregular shape. I was thinking, I'm sure it's normal, it will pass (mainly because I dreaded the thought of going to the doctors), but my wife persisted to see a doctor.
It doesn't get much more uncomfortable that having a doctor examine you down there. But after he did, he said it could be 'C' and I needed an ultrasound...then surgery and now my little friend is gone. Soon after, radio therapy and PET scan.
The PET scan showed all clear for testicular, but showed 'hot spots' around my throat, then had a biopsy which was indeterminate and I was told I might have another unrelated cancer in my throat. When I heard this, my wife and I hugged and cried together. She has been an amazing support.
The tumor in my throat was removed and was benign and I have been all clear for nearly two years.
Guys, don't be embarrassed to get something checked out! Doctors deal with this stuff all the time. I was lucky it was found early and didn't spread.
lost a wife last year becase of complication after giving birt to our daughter I wish Your wife and Your family best of wishesa and a lot of strength to fight.
I'm a frequent reader of your blog and a fan of your talks. I always enjoy the funny and thought provoking talks you deliver. Never guessed what you might be going through when you made us smile.
So, for all those smiles you brought to us, may your life be filled with joy, happiness and good health.
Keep it up.
Your story about how 'life was happening while Cancer happened' reminded me of the very powerful story told by commedian Anthony Griffith on The Moth. I highly recommend listening to his story though it's very tough to get through - by the end you will be in tears or on the brink - atleast I were.
The story is available on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdBJ1X33rXM
My best wishes for your family and a swift and full recovery!
Simon Skov Boisen
I almost feels guilty about enjoying so much the result of your work.
Thank you for being such a great example of living a double life as a person and a geek.
long time reader, enjoy your useful blog a lot. Sad to hear about the cancer; all the best - it's the modern plague, really, and bitter irony that the technologies we gather round in this blog and elsewhere amount to a hill of beans when it comes to this.
I hope that this episode of your life is in the end and in five years you come back to say that your wife has the cancer free label and wear the "I beat cancer" T-Shirt.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We wish Mo a full and speedy recovery and may you have the strength and support you both need.
All the best
Chris, Andrea & Henry
So yes, the earlier the detection, the better. I pray for your wife's road to recovery.
Lost my father and sister because of cancer.
Wish Mo en You and your kids all the best in this difficult time and hope that Mo will recover soon and the cancer will stay away.
I think you should buy a "She beat Cancer ->" T-Shirt for yourself and the kids as well.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I sincerely believe everything will be well. Go Mo!
I still remember running into you with all the family in LA during a PDC (2008, maybe?).
I wish you and your wife all the best and a speedy recovery.
I am saddened by the illness in your family but encouraged by the optimism in your writing. You and yours are in our prayers.
My story is more of "life continues to happen whilst Cancer happens". Both my mum & dad were diagnosed with terminal cancer a day apart. Deaf went quickly but mum held on through sheer stubbornness plus excellent treatment from the Peter Mac cancer centre here in Melbourne. For 13 months she lived with us during treatment, and spent less and less time at her own home. In the meantime we had 2 kids going to kinder and school, were trying for a third, my wife was running a small business and I tried to be present for everyone and keep a fulltime job.
It was hard, and almost pushed me over. It took a very good friend plus my loving wife to get me back into normal living mode again when it was finally over. That tool about 6 months hard work.
Don't underestimate the affect on yourself and the boys through this. You will hurt, the boys will know something is up.
I hope Mo continues to recover, and gets an "all clear" from the doctors until science gets to the point that it doesn't matter if someone gets cancer, rather than Cancer as we call it now.
My wife died of cancer last year. A colonoscopy at 50 may have saved her. Or may not have.
One thing I noticed with her and the too many other people in my life that have cancer is how well they handle the disease. I do not know what it is but they rise to the occasion.
Like in the Volcan old say: "Live long and prosper".
Long time listener/reader, first (or maybe second?) time poster.
Good luck to you and your wife. It's not an easy thing to get through, but it can be done.
I coincidentally just had a physical yesterday where the doctor did the prostate check (my 1st one). It wasn't a big deal in hindsight. I get the PSA (and other lab work) results back today. I don't anticipate any issues. However, I would reiterate your statement about getting regular check-ups. They're absolutely essential to early detection.
I worry in particular because my dad has Cancer (I like the capitalization; it's big enough that it deserves it) and I take after him in many ways. He made it past the 5 year mark after his surgery, but unfortunately it came back. He's now dealing with it in his early retirement years. It could be much worse for him. So far the meds are working very well. But it's definitely an "inconvenience" for him and my mom. It's a constant vigilance, unfortunately.
Once again, good luck to both of you. I wish you the best in beating Cancer into the ground where it belongs.
All the best to Mo, you, and your family, Scott.
The difference is that you have been willing to involve your personal life and situations.
That, not only gives a follower a sense of what's going on in tech matters, but a greater feeling of integration and involvement.
You and your wife deserve the best. Push on always...
And wishing you a wonderful birthday in this stressful time.
Best of luck to you all.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Scott.
May everything goes back to normal very soon.
As a developer, I've learned from you so many lessons. My computer boots to many different VHD's because you taught me that it was possible and led me by the hand through the process with very generous posts on the topic.
I work four days a week from home because you told me that was possible as well.
You deal with two young boys, type 1 diabetes and a very demanding schedule all while keeping what I think is a superior attitude and staying on top of what's happening in our constantly changing development community.
You've taught me much over the years, most of it not having anything to do with development and for that I thank you.
I've never met you or your wife in person but I'm willing to bet real money that she's every bit as awesome as you say she is. Give her my best and go ahead and buy that shirt :)
Thanks for being a great example for others who are dealing with cancer.
This is one of the reasons why I love reading your blog, you seem very grounded in reality and the fact that your day job, though very important in shaping who you are, is not the sum total of who you are.
The battles you face, diabetes and now cancer, hit home. I am fortunate enough not to face these battles but those I love and care about are/have, and your words add encouragement. Your words about diabetes helped me to be knowledgeable enough to let my father know he was managing his all wrong and to cause him to require more of his doctor(s).
My Best wishes to your beautiful family sir
So I thought I'd try to write something helpful and articulate (like the other guys). But the only thing that comes to mind is a (rather long) list of unprintable words with "unfair" as a delimiter.
I am so sorry to hear you guys are dealing with this.
What can I say that's encouraging? They say having the right attitude about life is key to getting healthy. Well, from what I can tell from your blog, the two of you are better equipped to face challenges like this than most anyone I know.
Best of luck to your family, Scott.
Thank you for sharing your experience, your account is touchingly frank. I wish you and your family all the very best in the times ahead.
Not being negative, but step back and relax and do something relevant to your family, like a great vacation. Who cares about code, technology, architecture, ... life is to short take a break once in a while. If you dont do things now you might never get a chance.
Best of luck,
I'm very sorry your family has been through this, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
My sincerest best wishes,
My best wishes to you and your wife. I know it's rough for both of you. My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer seven years ago, once again through routine screening. She is now seven years clear and we are both the biggest advocates of all routine screening. If it's offered to you, take it!
Having lost my mother to cancer last year, I wish you, Mo and the kids all the best, and hope you can all continue to live life as normally as possible.
All the best.
Something to keep in mind is the "cure" is rough, and being young it will cause long term problems you may not expect. Beating "C" isn't just the Cancer but also the effects of Chemo and/or radiation. I'm looking at $30K in dental work because the combo destroyed my teeth. Oh and it's dental so there is very little (read: no) coverage by health insurance. They don't seem to care why it's a problem, just that it's dental. I firmly believe that those who think healthcare in the US is mostly fine haven't had to use it. Sorry, getting off topic...
It is absolutely 100% necessary to get check ups, no matter your age.
The hardest part about my treatment wasn't something I had done, it was something I saw. Another man, same age as me also named Mike, was getting Chemo as well. It was clear though the Cancer was found far to late for him to have much if any of a shot. I remember his lovely wife and daughter visiting him very clearly. I also remember the things no one would say, and the way everyone faked hope. And the conversation we had after he left, how angry he way and how all I could do was agree with him.
I promise my prayers for your wife and your family.She will definitely beat cancer.
is it appropriate to ask which routing checkup is it that have found it?
May God bless you and your family! You'll be in my prayers!!
I've very sorry that you, your wife and your family have to go through this. It will take time, but please take the tiniest bit of comfort in knowing that eventually, that "feeling" that is now always with you will eventually start to fade.
Thanks for sharing this.
Just to add to your final words on making sure you get regular check ups with a doctor... it's a good idea to regularly visit a dentist as well. My mother had cancer of the mouth which was spotted during a routine check up at the dentist.
Being a husband of a cancer survivor, I can understand some of what you probably have gone through. The last 5 years have been the toughest I have every been through. My wife has done a great job keeping a nice home and raising 3 kids (I bet just like your wife with your busy schedule). Stay strong and hope your wife stays cancer free.
I strongly suggest this book: Anticancer, by David Servan-Schreiber.
It's AMAZING and has excellent advice.
The toxic things are everywhere... Starting from cosmetic through food and electronics (plastic, teflon etc.). We are everyday attacked by this kind of stuff and a lot of healthy people with healthy life style also get cancer because their genes were unable to fight toxic world.
My best friend had cancer.
My dad had cancer.
My other two friends parents had cancer.
My collegue in the work had cancer.
And now my aunt has cancer...
This world is toxic world almost in every piece of material, food and air. Only corportations tell us again and again that everything is fine and under control... They will destroy us because of money for their products.
We can only try to minimize this by buying good natural food, water filtering, using natural cosmetics (like Lavera company from Germany), instead using teflon everywhere exchane it to for example ordinary cast-iron frying pan.
I recommend all of you the book "Slow Death by Rubber Duck: How the Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Life Affects Our Health", by Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie.
GOOD LUCK for your family and especially for your Wife.
I wish you all the best and thank you for this post.
God bless You.
Get the t-shirt!
Scott, you probably thought your skills in connecting with people, your funny sense of humor, and your striving spirit culminated in your day job. Little did you know that was only an audition for the real job of supporting your wife after the nasty medicine is finished and the recovery begins. You are well suited for that.
All the best.
My wife is also battling with Cancer. *Our* one year scan is due in 10 days and I'm a wreck right now. I understand what you are going through. This thing changes the whole families life. Even though the little ones seem so agnostic to what is happpening around, they aren't really unaware.
I hope you are taking good care of yourself as well.
Life changes after diagnosis, but its only a new beginning. Meanwhile the support she will receive from you and those around, will be her biggest medicine.
So you all take care !
First time poster. Your blog post moved me... people are amazing, your wife sounds amazing, best wishes to you both and your boys. Keep up the good work, both at work and at home, you are both inspirational!
First, my best to you and your wife and your whole family. My thoughts are with you.
Almost a year ago, I was struck down with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. I spent five days in critical care, and it very nearly cost me everything. Only the quick diagnosis saved me from catastrophe. A year later, I am still recovering. My eyes may never be the same.
If I have any advice that may help, it's to understand that in long-term illnesses, it's the caretakers that are often overlooked. It's important to outsource the things that don't matter, if you haven't already: the cleaning, the yard work, the laundry if you can. Remember to take care of yourself during all this. My wife is a superhero, but every extra item on the to-do list was a potential straw that could have broken the camel's back. Don't be afraid to ask friends and family for help. They probably want to help, but don't want to intrude. It makes a world of difference to have just a few things just taken care of.
Again, all the best.
I hope the best for your wife, you, and the kids.
Wishing you and your family the best... you guys have been through a lot and yet you both seem very optimistic and positive about things.
I have been a close follower of your blogs and I don't think I'll ever stop learning things from you (not just on the professional side).
Your writing is touching.
I feel Very sad to hear this. I wish you all the best for your family and yourself and good luck sir.
Sorry to hear this,I wish you all the best for your family and your self. I can feel the pain of cancer because my mother has got the same thing and died 6 year ago.
It's good that your wife detected cancer in early stages so she can recover fast. Best of luck for her.
I think we should write about cancer and make people aware. Even I tried to write things in Gujarati which is our mother tongue in Indian language.
I am very sorry to heard that. I truly hope your wife gets well soon.
One thing I would like to tell you, in my country we have taught that we can live happily together with the cancer but we need to change our daily life. For example, eat only the good food (vegetarian is the best), stay calm, go to exercise (yoga is a good choice).
I'm so sorry to hear that.
My sister was diagnosed with burkitt's lymphoma about a year and a half ago. I shaved my head and spent a week in the hospital with her while she received the worst of a terrible noxious diet of chemo.
I've never seen someone so close to me so close to the edge...it was heart breaking knowing that I could basically do nothing but be there for her.
But you know what, she survived.
Another Seattleite here... I wish the best for you and your family. My prayers are with you.
Just wanted to say that I wish you and your family all the best. My prayers are with you too.
South African reader.
I wish your family & you good health and happiness for endless time.
My father had cancer, but he succumbed to it last year. I can imagine how tough it gets to first know and digest the fact that you are in this battle against such a formidable enemy.
Nice to know that your wife is on her way to beat it completely!!
Wishing her and you all the strength and good health.
I really hope everything goes well.
All the best for this year for wife and your family.
All the best to you and your family.
Another follower. :) Wishing your wife a speedy recovery. All my prayers are with your family. God Bless.
My thoughts are with you, Mo, and your family. All the best for a full recovery.
Thank you for sharing this. I wish you and your family the best.
I couldn't keep myself from writing a short comment and wish your dear wife a prompt recovery. Indeed she is a hero of our days. As someone who went through this process I understand how it is difficult to keep up and cope with the sickness, how it is a combat of every day to stand and don't fall. I'm reading you for a while now and I feel somewhat connected to you and your life. Thank you for sharing and letting us know about the hard times you are going through. All my prayers are with your family,
All the best for you and your wife. I really hope and pray the cancer is gone.
Supporting research is important. Hopefully they can find a final bug fix for this aweful thing in our source code once and for all. So noone has to go through this ever again.
My thoughts goes out to you and your family.
My best wishes and prayers with you. Wish your wife a speedy recovery.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Mo and you. My family has had their share of C and it's no fun. To see how well she handles it is surely an inspiration. Watching the videos again where you present at BUILD, you do a great job of hiding what is definitely foremost on your mind.
Thanks for all that you do for our community! Your sense of humor, wit and technical insight makes programming even more of a joy.
The bright side is she is still cancer free and the prognosis looks good. I am sure you and Mo will have similar success in beating the disease.
Best wishes - Jay Turpin
I am a longtime follower of your blog and i know how you fell, my wife lost her battle with lung cancer this past weekend after fight valiantly for 2 years..
yes all please ensure you get your regular checkups!!!
That was December 13 2012.
Cone Biopsy on the 17th, the day before my wife's 32nd birthday.
Found out the full extent on the 24th December
Total Hysterectomy on the 14th Jan, where the bladder was found to be perforated. She is currently resting, with a catheter due to come out at the start of February.
I hope your wife makes a complete recovery!
Rock on Scott
Stay strong, you both can beat it.
You'll all be in my prayers, and if there is anything we can do to help, just say the word.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and look forward to that blogpost in the not to distance future when you proclaim that she beat it. Even more, I love your hopes and join you in looking forward to advances in medicine so that we can refer to cancer with a little "C". In some way, this relentless disease has impacted us all with friends, family and loved ones. Lets hope for a cure so future generations won't be impacted. Thank you again for your good heart and contributions to the technical community at large!
Matthew 11:28: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest."
Philipians 4:6-7: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Respect for your wife who has a to-do list of everyday stuff while battling Cancer.
Best wishes, hope she kicks C right in the crotch.
A long time reader of your blog!
My best wishes, thoughts and prayers for you and your family.
Definitely good advice that has (literally) saved several friends and relatives.
Wishing your wife (and you) all the best!
I wish you and youre family all the blessings and love to overcome this evil disease!
WOW! This came as a shock to me! Although I have never met your wife but I have listened to her on your podcast. Your wife reminds me of my aunt who is extremely intelligent and witty.
I will pray for her continuous health and fast recovery!
Perhaps a site like StackOverflow, where people up vote what works for them. True, that not all solutions work on all people and all C types, but having options that may actually -work- for some...
Anyone up for a site like this?
Chemo and radiation should be treatments of last resort but are currently first - got to find something better.
Back to the diabetes similarity - trying to monitor progress in C is difficult. Do a treatment, wait 6 weeks, do a scan (ultrasound, PET, etc.). Need a good test, so that 'progress' can be determined.
Finally, IMHO, top anti-cancer items: D3, IP-6, Selenium (ref. Dr.OZ)
Best wishes and prayers for you and your family.
For the record I didn't smoke but I did drink a lot and hung out in smokey bars. but I stopped drinking when my radiation treatments started.
I'm really glad your wife is kickin' the Big C's butt too.
Thoughts and prayers are with you, Mo, and your family. I have had a few family members fight cancer as of late. I know it is beatable!!
I do hope that computer science, with all the data and analysis capabilities we have developed and medicine come together and find a cure soon.
Your wife is very fortunate to have you by her side through her journey, and I have no doubt it will be one filled with love, laughs, and technology. I wish the two of you and your kids a very happy recovery and a very long remission.
I am very sorry to hear that your wife has been diagnosed with cancer. I wish her a speedy recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in these difficult times.
Scott, Don't worry, She will stand on her knees soon strongly and play the role of devoted mother and lovely wife again as you've always expected.
Wish you the best for you and your strong wife.
It must have been terrifying not knowing how things would turn out and stressful for you, Mo and the family to deal with.
Thank you for being transparent about this deeply personal issue of family health. You've been an inspiration to me to make my voice heard and I'm glad we connected via the Interwebz.
I'm definitely looking forward to listening to the podcast of you and Mp sharing your thoughts and feelings on the journey. Here's rooting for you all that the word "cancer" will be a past tense going forward!
So when I have seen this (before listening) my first reaction was "this sucks! it's not fair!"
And while listening, I got to think about my wife, my 3 years old, work vs. family, all that stuff that we always ignore.
I wish Mo and you all the best in the world, to beat this and be there together, for your kids, and for each other, for a long-long-long time.
Thanks a lot for sharing the valuable and inspiring moments. It really touched me as reminded me the moment I was told my dad had cancer 12 years ago. I was watching desperately how Cancer took him bit by bit every hour.
And yes, well said: early diagnose, early diagnose, early diagnose,....
I deeply wish all the best for you guys and so glad she beat the cancer.
Martin - Sydney (Australia)
I've been away from your site for a long (too long) while now... And to come back and find this out...
I truly hope all is well with Mo and this is beat forever.
sorry to hear the news about Mo.
I'm happy to know you guys successfully went through that and I will keep you in my prayers.
Thanks for reminding us to go check routine checkups.
Go, Mo, Go.
Follower from South Africa here...I look up to you as one of the best bloggers of our time and have started a blog of my own :). My Mom was diagnosed with Cancer and so was my Father-in-Law so I know how it can be. They are still fighting the fight. I wish you and your wife a long and happy future together. You are both in my prayers.
I'm a natural health "freek" so if you need any extra advice just send me an email and I will share what I know.
God bless you and family.
I just hit this page accidentally. I was doing a Google search with Bing to give some more of my European/Stockholm buddies links to your good stuff and this link stuck out. I recently learned that 2 of my close friends are dealing with cancer, one of them was my former manager here. (He was the life of the entire company prior to leaving for new adventures.) The other is my barber. That said, I can't come close to imagining what you and your family are dealing with. My prayers go out to you and your wife. You are both terrific people and I wish you all the best!

Hang in there Scott.
