A Prayer Beg For A Friend

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

One of my co-workers has been battling ovarian cancer for a while now. She is going through her second round of chemotherapy and it is tearing her up inside. Recently, things have taken a turn for the worse. She’s been sick, worn down, and (understandably) filled with worry. I’ve known B. for eleven years, and [...]

A Bleg For Uncle Jack

Friday, September 30th, 2011

I wanted to take a minute to ask for an assist to my Uncle Jack. He sent this to the missus and I yesterday, and we figured it would be a good idea to re-post it here: My dear family and friends, I have leukemia. I had a bone marrow transplant on June 15, 2001 [...]

Overnight Thread

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

This may be a downer of an overnight thread, but I had to ask double duty on the prayer front. The first request is prayers for Mrs. Earp. She had an appointment with my dermatologist last week to have a mark on her forehead examined. The doc scraped off a sample and sent it out [...]

Calling In A Prayer Strike

Friday, January 28th, 2011

Regular readers know that I have been affected by cancer in recent years, and not in a good way. In 2009, I had surgery to remove basal cell skin cancer on my forehead, and last year, I lost my friend Clay Bond – the Right Wing Prof – to lung cancer. My hatred for this [...]

One year ago today, at this very moment, my friend and fellow blogger Clay Marc Bond lost his battle with cancer.

Democrat Cancer Mailing Offends NJ GOP

Friday, October 29th, 2010

And rightfully so. Remember that article yesterday when I said that people will do anything to get elected? Well, the hits keep on coming. The gentleman on the left is Larry Wallace, a Republican running for Freeholder in Gloucester County, New Jersey. Mr. Wallace lost his 9-year old son and his mother to cancer, and [...]

Running To A Clean Bill Of Health

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Okay, I’ll never be as skinny as I was in high school (5’8″ – 130 pounds) but some of my other issues have been rectified. At least temporarily. Today I had twin appointments, and both saw pretty good outcomes. First, I had to travel to the foot doctor for a follow-up. Yes, I know I [...]
