      Russ I am sorry to hear you have stomach cancer now! I think you have the right idea with those walks. I empathize with you because I just found out I have a secondary cancer in my kidney when I went on for scan results yesterday.
      I'm on the floor for a bit wrapping my head around it, but soon I'll be back up on my feet so I can fight. I think I will add walking my dogs as part of my fight so I can stay fit like you are. We can't let that beast win!

      Good luck!

      Russ, I’m so sorry you now have to deal with a new cancer. I send you my best wishes that your pain lessens greatly or goes away completely, and that you will beat this mofo just as you beat pancreatic cancer.

      We are glad that you were able to get through it for the better Russ! Any surgery is tough to recover from, but I remember the abdominal surgery I had in 88 and I think it was one of the hardest to recover from.

      Hi Russ. It is so great to see that you are feeling up to posting. It was so sweet of your daughter to keep us updated. I am glad that they were able to remove your cancer with surgery. My father had half of his stomach removed in the mid-80's and lived another 25 years. You beat the odds before, and you can do this again. Let us know how things are going, and if we can be of any help. You are always in my prayers. Take care.
