To my magic family,

I have been diagnosed with lung cancer, stage 3A. I have two tumors on my right upper lobe of my lung. I found out today that I will be having a lobe of my lung removed this Friday Dec 26th. I should be in ICU for a day or two, and in the hospital for a week or so if all goes well. The surgery will be followed by chemotherapy. I have never had a major health issue in my life, so this really sucks. The stats for mortality for this stage are devastating, but I plan to fight this disease with all I have.

I ask for my magic brethren to please send all of your good thoughts, and prayers, to me this Friday and beyond.

With a heavy heart,

Scott...I wish you all the best!

I agree with Richard [hugmagic].During your recovery...a Positive outlook,and a program of Visualization techniques is great approach to beating it.I have seen it work for someone very close to me.Keep the faith.

You're in my thoughts. Be strong!

May I ask, however, what "stage 3A" means? Does that mean "extra bad" or that you have a good fighting chance to make it for several more years?

Scott,

You are, of course, in my thoughts and prayers.

I agree with others that keeping a strong positive mental attitude is all important if you are to fight and successfully kick this @#$%$&!# in the a**.

Please keep us posted on your progress. If you ever feel the need to PM some of us--just to talk, get a pep talk, or whatever,...sign me up.

Best regards,

Mike

I am very sorry to hear that. But if there was ever a man that could beat cancer, I would say that is you, Scott. I have never seen you with less than a smile and you have an unparalleled intensity. My thoughts, wishes, and prayers are with you, my friend.

Thank you for all of the kind wishes and support guys. It is very humbling and I feel blessed.

Don, you have always been there for me, buddy, and I love you like a big brother. You have taught me so much.

Stone, stage 3A means both. It means that the cancer has advanced locally, but I have a fighting chance. There are lies, da*n lies, and statistics. With the proper treatment and attitude, this can be beaten. I have good doctors and I am a fierce competitor.

Kill the demon - lay him to rest
Use all your muscle - put a knife in his chest
If he quivers - if he ain't dead
Pull back the covers - cut off his head
Kill the demon!

Scott,

I am breaking my silence from the Magic Café because Don sent me an email about you. Let me tell you my dear friend, I believe in healing. My wife survived a malignant brain tumor. I believe the same for you and will pray for your quick and speedy recovery. Chemo is a lot better that it used to be. Hey maybe you won't even lose your hair!!! (LOL, I am kidding).

Please let me know if there is any thing we can do for you or your family.

Ok guys, lets mobilize and kick the s*** out of this cancer. It can be done.

Hi Scott:

I'll be praying with the others for you. Please know that my brother was diagnosed with cancer a couple of years ago - cancer in the sinus'. The Mayo Clinic said things looked really bad for him. I can tell you that I'll be seeing him tonight and he's cancer free, in perfect health and a full head of hair.

Richard is right when he says that stats are meant to be proven wrong. Attitude is everything as others have said.

Merry Christmas to you.

Ron

I truly believe in the power of numbers when it comes to prayer. I will be one of those praying for your full recovery. Meanwhile, get some "Pink Panther" movies or the like, laughter is very powerful medicine!

Scott,

Plan to take some effects to blow away the hospital staff during your recovery! It'll give you a distraction and maybe score you some extra jello. Smile

Although we have never personally met, please know that you are cared for and that my thoughts and prayers are with you!
