An update for Taff

Letting you know that I’ve been diagnosed with lung cancer, affecting a lower posterior rib. I have a phone call tomorrow that will update me on my next steps. And this past Tuesday, my Mom was interred on Manitoulin Island, beside her husband (my Pops). Her death became real to me on seeing her casket and that’s when I burst into sobs. Before now, no casket as we had to wait for the ground to thaw so that the grave could be dug. Anyway, please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I don’t post much nowadays but I’ll keep you updated. Hugs, folk.


Sorry to hear about your mom. Stay strong and ill keep you in my prayers.

Thoughts and best wishes to you and your family. Friday, June 2nd, marks 5 years since my Mom passed and we spread her ashes (per her request) in the Blue Ridge Mountains on north GA. In some ways it seems like yesterday and in others it seems like 20 years. You hear people say often, when losing a parent especially, they wish for one for chat, one more phone call, one more piece of advice. I never understood until I understood.

Taff, so sorry for the struggles you’re going though right now with your mom’s death and your diagnosis, hugs and will keep you in my prayers.
My wife worked for a doctor whose wife was diagnosed with lung cancer, must have been a lower lung because they removed the part with the cancer and that was over 10 years ago and she’s still going strong.

Taff, you have my fervent prayers. I hope you beat this challenge.

Prayers for you , Taff.

I’m so sorry to hear that. Please stay strong
