    No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away.

    A Terry Pratchett quote That I hope holds true for me

    There may be some that wonder what happened so

    First diagnosed cancer Oct 19 Prepped in Nov, Treated in December.
    By mid 2020 I knew that it had started to spread so a new treatment started not to stop it but to slow it down.
    By end of year it was clearly not working
    So my friends, it is soon to be goodbye.
    I have been told that my life expectancy is short
    My consultant has suggested that typically with people in my situation 25% will live for less than 4 months, 50% will live for 4 to 8 months and 25% may live a bit longer.
    Clearly then I need to make preparations and one of those is saying my goodbyes
    I met a whole bunch of good guys on this forum I am pleased to say, so a truly happy experience
    If you think of me then hug your kids and grandkids just a little more and keep a smile for me.
    It comes to us all ......just a bit sooner than I hoped for me

    I remain a forum friend

    Sorry to hear, Mike.

    Hoping that the stats are wrong like they were for others and that you get to live life the best you can.

    Much love, Brother.

    Thank you for your post. May God bless you, and your family. While I don't know you, I suspect thank you've touched many people. Allow me to thank you on their behalf for something you never asked for.
