He hasn't completely recovered, he's in remission which is different I think.

Uncomfortable agnostic: "That was almost... well, religiously confirming."

Refurbishing a small chapel; "Lillies of the Field" - best film, 1963. Watch it once in your life, or, burn in h - e - double hockeysticks.

It is sad the dog died, because heart worm is preventable.

I wouldn't say the guy is cured, he is in remission, which is good.  Doing things that give you purpose can be very helpful in face of illness.  I know that from my own experience with my M.S.

At various times in our lives many of us find ourselves searching.

That time came three years ago for Greg Thomas. "When I found out that I had cancer, they told my family to go ahead and start planning my funeral."

Diagnosed with stage 4 head and neck cancer at the age of 57, then let go from his propane delivery job, Thomas began passing the hours on long walks from his home alone with his dog and his thoughts.

"It's a nightmare you can't wake up out of," he recalls.

Then the daily walks down a gravel road led him to the wood-framed country church that would change his life.

A heart warming story. Good luck to him :yes:

Hopefully things will go well for him.

At least he found some purpose.

I remember reading about a person who had a stomach ulcer, was given only a few months to live by doctors. He decided to live the last of his life happily. But it turns out tat he recovered from the ulcer in the end.

This seems to be the same as this article?

I find that there are  more miraculouse recoveries without or with less kimo. I think with really bad cancers, I'll take my chances with the cancer and other alternatives.

Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "
