    Default I had Always Hoped

    That I would never have need to post in this forum, but today, that hope has come to an end.

    It is with very heavy heart that I tell all of you that my lovely wife of 33 years, who many of you know as The Okette, has been diagnosed with moderate stage Multiple Myeloma. This is a cancer of the bone marrow platelets.

    She started chemotherapy today. With the best of luck, she will undergo chemo for 4 or 5 months and then be evaluated for candidacy as a stem cell recipient. If she is lucky enough to respond well to the chemo and get the stem cell transplant, the odds are in her favor. If not, the odds are not good.

    Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. We will miss her very much if we lose her.

    You may call on me for anything. If you have any questions about anything or need access to resources let me know and I can help. You got my number.

    Remember, help also means finding a minute or two to distract yourself from the seemingly overwhelming conversations in your head. You have a couple thousand friends here in the forum to keep you grounded; myself included.

    TQJ forum may not be the appropriate place to address this but I am a trauma nurse. I challenge all of you to consider volunteering as potential bone marrow donors. It is a very simple blood test to determine your eligibility and potential donors hip. The life you save may be someone you care for very much.

    All the best Tim, to you and yours. We are here for you
