Hi Dave
You will never know how much inspiration your story about your journey, written only the way you write, means to so many fellow warriors. My husband just loves it when I set him up to read you blog. He is totally computer illiterate but I make sure he reads your blogs. He has taken a couple to his oncologist to read and she thinks you have the gift for sure. "YOU" are the gift for others. You take the hardest situation and write your true feelings in such a way that is all seems "okay". Just another day and another part of the journey. Thank you for making me "smile". Hugs to you for being able to accept what you have to hear, deal with what you have to deal with and still be able to "kick cancers arse" Mary

Hey David,

Well, ok the brain mets aren't the best news, but like you said; it could have been worse. You sir are a true warrior! You never surprise me; you just take everything in stride. You are a true inspiration and I'm so thankful I found your blog.

Take Care!

You aren't a whiner. I think your writing is wonderful. I think maybe God sent you to me to help me get through my anxiety problems with this. It's like you are reading my mind everyday with what you write. I can feel your pain. You are making me a Warrior.
