Keeping Agent Orange in the bright light of the American public is invaluable to those of us who are touched by its ravages.

However, for me, life continues to be interesting and filled with surprises — both kind and unkind. I wasn’t really looking for more company, but, a third cancer has joined my life. I have a new companion traveling along with me and becoming a new partner in my everyday living On August 18, 2011 I got the word that my T-Cell leukemia has now progressed to an “evolving lymphoma.” My rare blood cancer has now infiltrated an organ in my body. The largest organ the human body has — the skin.

When I told a cherished friend of mine of the potential for my undergoing chemo, he said, “You know, I’ve a mind to shave my head.” Truly understated loyalty.

Good News. No treatment. I wouldn’t have to begin chemo! Not yet.

We would be on the “wait and watch” track again. No intervention or invasive treatment would be done for another 6 months.
