Yes. The following is a testament to God’s mercy and grace.
Over the past 12 years: One aggressive non-Hodgkin’s T-Cell Lymphoma with two relapses. A second aggressive non-Hodgkin’s T-Cell Lymphoma. About 100 tumors in my lymphatic system, spleen, small intestine and bone marrow. A third bone marrow cancer - MDS, precursor to Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Stage IV twice. All three cancers simultaneously. Allogeneic stem cell transplant. Acute > Chronic Graft-versus-Host disease, Chronic kidney disease, type II diabetes, both chemotherapy induced and diabetic neuropathy in hands and feet, cataracts, long-term high-dose steroids, hypertension, and lately, a small believed to be benign tumor in my frontal lobe. Other than that, I’m fine.
Yet, in meeting me, no one suspects any of this. Life is still worth living and I pray that I might serve my purgatory on earth - as I have a long way to go, spiritually.
