Sorry for the lack of a update but all is not going will at this time. For some unknown reason to the people that are working with me and myself the medicine that i need to take is not being issued to me the way i'm required to take it do to government bureaucracy . We have found some free samples of the drug so as to not have me off it completely for now why we fight to get me the infusions that i have not had now for over two months. Thanks for all the help so far, the bills are showing up and getting paid but more are still on the way so help is a must to cover the cost. Thanks for reading my update and i will try to keep you all informed on my progress.
So i just posted up a video that appeared in The Bicycle Film Festival a few year back about my brain cancer fight that i had in 2004. I had surgery one month before my birthday and had to start chemo just a little after it. At the time a company had created a chemotherapy called Temodar that was showing positive results in stoping growth in my kind of brain cancer. I was lucky that the company donated the medicine to me, if they could scan, monitor and watch how the chemotherapy is working to help further their research on the drug and the cancer. I used to spend two to three hours in one of the big machines down by the S.F. Giants stadium.
