    I hope my intentions are not misunderstood by starting a thread like this, but I feel too inclined. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    John, my buddy from High School who we are still very close with, has been fighting a rare form of cancer for a few years now. He is only 33, and the cancer began in his hip, which really sucks because he loved to run with a passion, and was a hell of a runner at that. He has been through numerous surgeries and experimental treatments, the latest of which was in Rotterdam. After finishing his last treatment, he fell, and - bless his heart - broke the other
    hip. [img]smilies/cry.gif[/img] He was airlifted to Chicago, to have hip surgery, where the doctors deemed his platelet count to be way too low for the procedure.

    His wife Barbara has arranged an emergency blood drive over the next two days to help him prepare for the surgery. He is scheduled to have this extremely risky procedure on Tuesday.

    I love John like a brother, and he has been an inspiration to me all along as he has fought this cursed thing with courage and determination. I bleed inside to have to think about the possibility of losing him someday. Barbara is the sweetest little angel you'll ever meet, and they have an adorable 2-yr. old son, Jacob.

    Those of you that know me well know that I am a very humble guy who values friendship immensely, and I rarely ask for anything from my friends. I'm asking you to think of him as he heads for this surgery on Tuesday. If you are a praying person, please do so for him - but any good vibes will do. I ever so strongly believe in the healing power of love and good vibes.

    This is my earnest plea to you. Thank you.


    Oh, BTW - John prefers the Roth era. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I'll send him a prayer Wolfman. That's way too sad to hear he has to go through this at such an early age. You are obviously a true friend to him, and I'm sure this is extremely hard on you and his family as well. Let's hope he beats this. Drop me an E-mail in the next couple of days man. I'll explain then. Out.

    I'm sure a prayer from North Carolina couldn't hurt either.... please be sure to keep us posted about how he's doing.

    I must say I'm not the praying type either, however that doesn't mean I don't care. I will certainly think of your friend and hope for the best for him and his family. It must be a very tough thing to go through. I can only imagine.

    Hey Wolfman,is there a P.O. box near where he and his family lives were perhaps some of us linkers could send any "Get well" cards, or flowers or something along those lines?

    I'd be happy to send along a little card or something...! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Wolfman, you know that he's got prayers coming from me, and so do you!!

    He's lucky to have a great friend.

    Drive safely on your way to see him.

    You have my sympathies. It's certainly not inappropriate to ask us for prayers. What a worthwhile way to interact with friends on the web! I will pray for John (for healing) and for you (for peace of mind). Tell him you love him, give him encouragement, and trust that all will work out the way it's supposed to.
