"Looking good Billy Ray!"

"Feeling good Louis!"

That's about how it is for me right now. In the back of my mind, I understand that this might not last. Statistically it can't last. But statistics are boring, and right now I'm not being forced to take any chemo. In essence I have returned to a physically "normal" life, a life chopped into 6 week segments. And I was just given another reprieve at my MRI today.

I understand people's expectation for cancer to cause physical mutation. Before my "survivorship" began, I generally expected the same. That said, sometimes brain cancer makes for a strange bedfellow - predictively deadly yet often presently invisible. So yes, for now I'm looking good, feeling good, and for the most part, living good.


  1. So great Eric! Hopefully, the vaccine is the end of brain tumor statistics. Thinking good thoughts for the next 6 weeks and all of the weeks after that.

    Keep looking, feeling, and living good!

  2. Awesome - you are moving the stats in the right direction - so keep it going for yourself and everyone else!!

  3. I totally know what you mean - deadly, but no one can tell you're sick. Whenever I ride the NY subway now and see the signs "sometimes disabilities are invisible" or whatever they say I'm always like.. yep and I have brain cancer! Hope you keep doing well.

  4. Eric,
    I wanted to stop by and say happy anniversary. I saw a article about some recent research into the enzymes associated cancer cells and how they were being investigated for the possibility of utilizing them to fight cancer.
    I thought a positive story would be a good way to earmark the occasion. Update as often as you can.
