    Hi All,

    Some of you may know already. I have been told I have cancer. At frist only in my lower Oesophagus. 10 days later they also found it in a Lymph gland in my chest. The out-look is not the best, but I’m going to fight it all the way! I start treatment on Thursday 21st. I have little information as yet on how long or which chemo treatment they will give me. So I may not be posting for a little bit from then on.

    I wish all my ship-mates here a Merry Christmas and good dice rolls in the new year. I plan too.

    Be safe

    Rory

    Awful news. Let your medical experts do what they have to & on your part, remain as positive as possible. It can be beat.

    Rory,

    Break the line, let loose with both broadsides and rake it from stem to stern!

    Dammit, Rory.  Treat this cancer like a fight with a pirate.  You’re under no obligation to fight fair.  Do whatever it takes to win, kick its ass, and run the rest of its companions up a yardarm for a quick dance.

    On a related note, if there’s anything we can do for you on this side of the Atlantic, please do not hesitate to ask.

    Hi All,

    I’m back from chemo. I see my life as B.C. (Before Cancer) and A.D. (After Drugs). My B.C. life is over! I’m now into A.D. life. This life is not worse just different.  I hope to start painting again. Something I must do. As you can see in my photo B.C. me had long hair. As I know I will loose my head I cut it off. So A.D. starts with a new short haired me. Must start painting. My Chemo is in cycles. 2 plus hour of pumped with drugs (Poison) then 21 days of tablet chemo. I week off, Oh! scans and tests then start all over again. They tell me it does not get better as you go on! Must paint!

    Thanks for all your support.

    Be safe

    Rory A.D.

    I’ve had the honor to know a number of cancer survivors. They have all had a passion for something. We’re pulling for you.
