    Hey, thanks for the thoughts. It was a miracle that they caught it early; medicine is so advanced nowadays. She goes to Kaiser Roseville. What part of Sacramento are you from, by the way?

    Hey buddy!

    Well technically we start the 5yr clock at the time at which you are cancer free. So that clock started January 2012. So far so good. I have a CT Scan scheduled for this April. :)

    I have a bunch of issues due to the treatments but I'm alive and I'm working like a madman.

    Add me on Facebook. I put all of my nature work pictures up there now instead of the environmental forum. :)

    Good point! Considering it was stage 4 cancer it is kind of a miracle. Modern cancer medicine has come a long way.

    I don't go mad. I love my job. I get to help people and nature. What's not to love? :)

    You figure it out and I'll supply the boat. Or perhaps we three could meet in Seattle sometime this coming June 12-19.

    Hi All,

    I thought I'd provide a little update.

    As of last weekend I am 3yrs cancer free!

    Kaiser Permanente chose me as one of four people for their Care Stories (Kaiser Care Stories) group. They created a short video about me and my care team. They are the care provider for the Sacramento Kings basketball team so they showed my video at Friday night's game vs. the Miami Heat as part of their cancer awareness night program. They took me and my team onto the court where we stood while the video played. It was pretty cool!

    Here is the video they made.
