Curt vs. Cancer

51416932_1600873909296845_r.jpeg

Well, I came down with a case of the cancers. Mercifully, it's the type of cancer that does not metastasize, or at least hasn't for me. It's a tumor. It's been treated with radiation which did what it was supposed to do and shrank the tumor. On on September 30 they'll commit surgery on it.

All-in-all, the chances of successful recovery are very good.

So, as scary as all this is, the problem is not with the treatment. The problem is with the American medical system. I have insurance and a good job. And already my savings have been drained and there's a huge bill waiting to be paid that I can't afford to knock off. So, unfortunately, I need to solicit for help in this fashion.

If you can afford to help out, please do. I'd like to make it through this both alive and without having to shake a tin cup at Civic Center. The only thank you I can give you, aside from saying "thank you" is in sharing with you my long poem called "Disease days." I'll send it to each of you who contribute.
