October 12, 2015 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Prostate Cancer. An uncommon form and an aggressive type difficult to treat so I was given a 27% chance of surviving 12 months. I had decided against treatment except for pain management. However, my twin sister's daughter, Shannyn came into my life and my being her mother's twin brother, I had to do anything I could to help Shannyn find closure and truth about Laura. We both needed that and each other. So, I began treatment which included 7 weeks @ 5 days per week of positive proton radiation, a round of chemotherapy every 3 months for 2 years, 47 different prescription medications, 4 procedures and 1 surgery, 21 trips to the emergency room (an uncommon and adverse reaction to the chemo) which resulted in being admitted to the hospital 17 times. Over 2 years later I was in remission but facing the almost 100% chance of cancer redeveloping within 5 years and on August 3, 2019 I found out that it has; Advanced stage Prostate Cancer with malignant bone metastasis for which there is no cure/remission. The only "treatment" is a type of chemotherapy that slows down the growth of the cancer but doesn't make it go away. Since I have an aggressive type of cancer it'll progress quickly even with the chemo which is similar to what I had before that put me in the hospital at an average rate of every 6 weeks. If I have the same adverse reaction to this chemo as I did the first, then I'll discontinue the treatment and focus on pain management.
Cancer runs in my paternal side of the family. My father, his siblings (those who lived to adulthood) and both of his parents and his died of cancer. To date, 2 of my siblings have been diagnosed with cancer. Between the genetics and having grown up in Oak Ridge, Tennessee... cancer was a given for me and mine so I'm not surprised.
Believe it or not, I'm not freaking out or loosing my mind over this because my life has been a great ride and will continue to be because I intend to live life until I'm dead.
