Post by: ezman604 on May 21, 2018, 04:54:50 PM
If you possibly can, please see this and let's try to send a little love to a fellow GTA family member. He has always tried to make us laugh when times were tough. Now it's our chance to return the great favor.
GOB Bless my friend!!!

I would like to thank everyone for the love and support you are providing me though this fight. This means more to me than anyone knows. I try to thank everyone personally, but I know I will miss a few and for that I truly apologize.

You are helping me make this fight easier and I will do whatever I can to win. Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers.

I tried to use PayPal also but found no way to do it. Currently waiting for replacement debit card as someone hacked card and I had to put a stop on it.  If someone knows how to use PP please let us know.

pv

Just re-checked, they only accept PP for donations to charitable organizations. Not sure just what that all means?

From the website:


Can I use PayPal to collect donations?


Only Certified Charity campaigns created on GoFundMe after November 3, 2016 can accept donations via PayPal. 

All Personal campaigns, as well as Certified Charity campaigns created prior to November 3, 2016, only accept donations by credit or debit cards.

I would like to thank everyone for their prayers. I had positive news today, but I have been running around so much at the VA this week I'm worn out. LOL Another day at the VA tomorrow and hopefully I will have the strength I can give everyone an update.

Strength is important too. Take care of yourself and get some much needed rest. Get refreshed to fight the good fight.
Give us an update when you are rested and refreshed.

A little update. I start radiation on my Monday for 2 1/2 weeks. The doctor is very confident it will work. He told me that it will not get all the cancer cells in my brain. I will be staying at a house at the VA for people that live a distance. I will have short term memory loss, what is new with that. LOL When the doctor has confidence it gives me confidence. I have a great support system here on the GTA, my family, and my friends. I really did not know how much people really cared for me. While I may never be cured, it will improve my quality of life and the good Lord has given me a chance to make amends. I am truly humbled for all the out pouring of help. People I do not even know are bringing by meals. :) I still love to eat!

They love me in oncology radiation because I am always wearing a t-shirt with graphics or sayings. It brings a smile to my face to make others smile and forget about life for awhile.

Monday I will go in wearing my Sponge Bob t-shirt. :)

Hey Jesse!

That's great news!  Stick with it!

Try keeping a journal.  My dad has short term memory loss from a stroke and I haven't been able to convince him to write stuff down.  He's just a little bit stubborn.   ;)

Or I guess it's another reason to get tattoos like Guy Pearce in the the movie Memento.   ;D

It doesn't seem I'm able to attach a picture, sorry.

Post by: Sfttailrdr46 on June 07, 2018, 11:36:02 PM
 ;) We all have our standards to uphold mine is black tee shirts. But for Jesse I would do Sponge Bob  and that would be a double sacrifice since that is one cartoon character that I truly detest on many levels. First and foremost is that my younger stepson back in the early days would watch that show just to torture me when me and SWMBO were first starting our relationship. He was hoping that I would give up and run screaming from the house forever. Good news is I wore him down and now he loves me  ::) ::) However I still hate Sponge Bob. If I can find the shirt I will post a picture of me wearing the tee in a biker bar for Jesse  ;D ;D

I would like to thank everyone in their support for me. I know I can not name everyone. I really do feel special, from the prayers, texting me, and the monetary support. My biggest fear was not being able to pay for final expenses, But thanks to all the great people here I now have a plot under a tree with birds and squirrels surrounding me. I promise I will not move in early. :) Again thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I am going to win this battle, and kick cancer in the butt.
