    Well the scoop on my hit and miss on the forms lately I just found out I have lung cancer and it looks like I have good odds but the doctors say it will be longer the normal like a year recovery time this has not hit me well with the need for a new job with the company I work for getting out of the electrical business (no job) but I have been hiding some good news I just had a healthy 7lb baby girl ( for you doing the math we did not know of the cancer 9 months ago) that means the money is tight I am paying me own health ins and I may sell the house to down size cost till I get well

    Thanks for my family and ck-5 family

    Wow. Congrats on the baby, and I hope everything else works out.

    I was just reading an old post of yours the other day and wondering where you'd been.

    yikes, this sucks. :(

    If ya gotta downsize for the time being, now is a good time to do it... rates are still purdy good. With just one kid, you don't need a LOT of space anyway. Better to live in a slightly smaller house than stay in a bigger one and not be able to afford food or something. :(

    Hopefully the docs are right and you'll be ok in the long run. Stay posetive... keep pluggin' away. The brotherhood is here for ya. I ain't a vendor or anything, but if it gets bad over there, maybe a raffle or something could be done to score ya some needed ca$h? :thinking:

    A paypal fund could be set up as well. I'm broke as a joke at the moment but I could donate over x-mas break if I get my old job back.

    Sorry dude, I hope everything turns out alright for you. Let the brotherhood know if we can help in any way.

    yeah sorry to hear that. especially from someone that doesnt smoke, not that I would want to hear that kind of news from anyone. but at least youve got some good news, good odds and a new family member so congrats on that and good luck.

    yeah, I ain't rich either... all my $ is going to my wife's Roth IRA and a downpayment / closing costs for a new house in 07..... but I could still scrounge some dough for something like this. Gotta watch each others back in the B'hood.

    Sorry too hear that, and congratulations on the little one. BE a fighter you need to raise that baby.


    If someone sets-up a donation fund, I will donate what I can to help a man in need.

    Don't let that kid grow up without a dad. Do whatever you gotta do, ASK for help if you need it!

    I am so sorry to hear that man , hang in there . My mother has had cancer in her Thyroid , and breast cancer . Shes still around due to her fighting attitude . Hopefully you can beat yours too . Wish you the best . I am taking this to heart and really trying to quit smoking this upcoming year .

    You can get it without smoking . Forest fires , second hand smoke , industrial by products , house fire , many things daily could cause lung cancer .
