So, now that you can eat real food, have you made a list of what you're going to scarf down? I'll help.

barbecued
pork chops
pork tenderloin
baby back ribs
chicken
steak
fish
veggies (mushrooms, peppers, onions)

junk food
chips
chips
chips
pop
pop
pop
hahaha

That's a good start. Enjoy the freedom man, real glad to hear you're kicking ***. You'll turn into an albino at this rate, or a wolf man, only going out at night, the neighbors will start to ask questions, hahaha.

That John Wayne quote is a good one.

hey!

I'm new to the site and don't know you but hey, people are people... I wish you the best man... and after reading all 6 pages I can tell you have some friends here. Hell even the ones that seen to love disagreeing with you don't want to see anything happen to you. To me that saya alot about how well your respected here.

I must admit I read this thread with tears in my eyes.. it kinda touches home in a couple ways... One way is I'm also 33 and am often reminded how fast a life can be changed at any age. But mostly because a year and a half ago I lost my youngest sister to leukemia. She passed away 2 weeks after her 12th birthday. And throughout the 11 months she was under treatment she went through pretty much everything you've discribed (and more) so reading about yours hit home pretty hard. I bet often you ask yourself how they came up with this kemo crap and call it a medicine!!! With all the things it does to you one often wonders how can it be doing ANYTHING good... but until we find better, we fight with what we can.

fight hard man

I am sorry to hear about your sister. I can only imagine what it would be like to lose a brother or sister, especially at her age. People do everything they can to fight this type of thing, somethimes it's just not enough. The good thing is your sister is in a better place where she is no longer sick, or in pain. Just know that she is watching over her big brother.

My family just found out my cousin has some kind of cancer(not sure what) the other day. They originally thought it was some kind of infection but no doctor could figure it out. They took her to some childrens doctor in Houston and found out she has some kind of cancer(something with the lymph nodes I think) They did some tests today and she is in stage 3(out of 5) in it so they don't know how long she's had this. She is only 7 btw. Hope you and my cousin both get through this and everything.

Alright guys and gals here is the poop.

Today is day+35. 5 days ago I had my 30 day bone marrow biopsy. This one is done to check how well the transplant went. They look at many different things including; The number of blast cells(cancer cells), quality of the tissue, and percentage of donor marrow vs my marrow. They also check for any chromosome mutations if any that remain.

We got some results but not final results.
At this point I am in remission and I am cancer free!!
They said the sample looks great. Quality is good, with no seen blast cells. We have not found out yet what percentage of donor cells I am. We are hoping and praying for 100% donor cells. The higher percentage of my own cells that remain, increase the chances that the cancer will come back. I also had a chromosome mutation known as Trisomy8. We have not gotten those results back yet either. The soctor feels that it will be gone. I don't know how the mutation will effect me if it is present still. I will have to cross that bridge if it comes.

I am not out of the woods yet. I have a long way to go, with my recovery. I probably won't be back to work for a while. Which is fine, sort of. I need to work on getting healty and stronger, before I start the headache called work.

I'm still going to the clinic 3 times a week, so they can watch my progress. They say I am doing great, which is awesome. I am still very careful about what I do and don't do. They tell me I am very fragile right now, so I have to be careful not to get sick. So I play games and come here to bide my time until I can do more things.

I wanted to thank everyone for your support and prayers. I could not have gotten this far without you.

I will keep everyone posted as things come up.


Never give up! Never surrender!

Just saw this on FoxNews.com and thought other might like to read some good news about he fight to cure cancer...

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,211592,00.html


Thursday, August 31, 2006

WASHINGTON Government scientists turned regular blood cells into tumor attackers that wiped out all signs of cancer in two men with advanced melanoma. The striking finding, unveiled Thursday, marks an important step in the quest for gene therapy for cancer.
But the genetically altered cells didn't help 15 other melanoma victims. So scientists are trying to strengthen the shots.
Still, the National Cancer Institute called its experiment the first real success in cancer gene therapy because it fought cancer's worst stage, when it has spread through the body, unlike earlier attempts that targeted single tumors.
And the government hopes to soon begin testing the gene therapy in small numbers of patients dying from more common cancers, such as advanced breast or colon cancer.
The hope is that one day, such treatment might provide long-lasting tumor suppression.
"It's not like chemotherapy or radiation, where as soon as you're done, you're done," said lead researcher Dr. Steven Rosenberg, the NCI's surgery chief. "We're giving living cells which continue to grow and function in the body."
The first two successful patients appear melanoma-free almost two years after infusions of tumor fighters made from their own blood. Doctors can't predict how the men will fare long-term. Melanoma, the most aggressive skin cancer and killer of almost 8,000 Americans a year, is notorious for returning years after patients think they've subdued it.
"I'm cured for now," is how a grateful Mark Origer, 53, of Watertown, Wis., put it after a checkup from NCI doctors this week. "I know how fortunate I am to have gone through this and responded to this. Not everybody's that lucky."
Cancer specialists praised the work, published Thursday by the journal Science, but warned that years of additional research are needed.
"Clearly this is a first step," cautioned Dr. Len Lichtenfeld of the American Cancer Society. "We have to be very cautious about not raising hopes too much."
But, "it is exciting," he added. "It certainly is a proof of concept that this approach will work."
NCI's Rosenberg has long led a tantalizing research field: how to harness the body's immune system to fight cancer. White blood cells called T-lymphocytes hunt down germs and other foreign tissue. But cancerous cells look a lot like healthy cells, making it hard for those T-cells to spot a problem.
By 2002, Rosenberg had made a breakthrough. He found small numbers of cancer-fighting T-cells inside some patients with advanced melanoma. He literally pulled those cells out of their blood, and grew billions more of them in laboratory dishes, enough to have a chance at overwhelming a tumor when they're pumped back into patients. About half significantly improve after this so-called "cell-transfer therapy."
But few melanoma patients make enough cancer-fighting T-cells naturally for scientists to spot in their bloodstream, and T-cells that attack other cancers are virtually impossible to find. So Rosenberg and colleagues set out to create those tumor fighters from scratch.
The scientists took normal lymphocytes ones that don't recognize cancer out of 17 patients with advanced melanoma who had exhausted their treatment options. They infected those cells with a virus carrying genes that create T-cell receptors, essentially homing devices for, in this case, melanoma. (Different genes create receptors for other cancers.)
"We can take a normal cell from you or me or any patient and ... convert that cell into a cell that recognizes the cancer," Rosenberg explained.
In 15 of the 17 patients who tried it, the newly armed cells took root and grew at low levels for a few months. But only two saw their tumors gradually fade away Origer and a 30-year-old whose T-cell levels remained super-high for over a year.
Why did the genetically altered cells flourish in only two people?
"That's the critical question," said Dr. Patrick Hwu, melanoma chairman at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, who once worked with the NCI team.
Picking the right lymphocyte to genetically alter isn't easy there are many different kinds or perhaps more precise T-cell receptors were needed, Hwu suggested.
But "these are all solvable issues," he stressed, calling the study "one of the first documented, effective cases of cancer gene therapy working."

All That Remains - The air that I breathe

I will not relent no, no
never live with defeat never falter
this like the air that i breathe
I will not choke on failure

I am a mortal man
But I'm not fallen
I'm not broken
I am a mortal man But I'll
hold tight to my beliefs

I have suffered defeat, pain, loss
still I push to the edge, never falter
for this cements my beliefs
I'll will not choke on failure

I will not relent


Dedicated to Flame.

FIGHT!

Moral support 101:

Question: What does guts mean in japanese?

Answer: The same thing it means in english. In the 1300's the japanese shotokan people had a saying which simply was said as "guts" but meant so much more.It means to go till you drop and never give up at any cost. Never give in and never lose faith/hope/ whatever you believe in.It takes a real man and/or woman do have "guts" and it is a very respectable, influential trait to have. My friend i do not even know you but i know your suffering and your holding on so you serve as an example to all of us not to take life for granit. I hope you get better and fully recovery and go back to doing all the things that you love to do. Good luck man.



We should look up to you.

Oh sheesh, I feel terrible for not coming by here and seeing this before tonight.

I read through it Flame, and I'm happy to see you're cancer free and kickin'. Most of us may only know you through these forums, but we all look up to you as a member of our community. It's an inspirational story to any and all of us to see a member of our community rise up to meet this challenge. To face it head on, not give up, and to win! It's lifted my spirits, that's for sure.

Stay strong FT, stay strong.

Way to go bro!!! Don't hardly know who you are, but if you're a fellow baller and PBreviewer, that's good enough for me. It's good to hear that you're doing fine. My grandfather didn't do so good back in October. He was almost through with the chemo, but it made him so weak he couldn't hold on. My grandfather died of a heart attack last October, as a result of chemotherapy. You pulled through bro, you're a lucky dude. Not everyone can say that. Just live life to the fullest and make it worth something, but I know you will!!!

FLAMETHROWER ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
