This is the last note (God willing) related to cancer that I will be sending.
The regime of chemotherapy & radiation are complete, and the upshot: any malignant cells are "below detection." Don't be fooled - they are still around, probably numbering in the hundreds of millions, but within a being with ~40 trillion cells, it's a scattered minority. Nonetheless, for myself, that's good news on an intergalactic scale. Further, I am lucky enough to send out my own "final" note.
The Dalai Lama once said, "Pain is inevitable. Suffering is a choice." The tremendous support by all of you made it easy to not choose suffering. Here's a brief that is intended to be as inclusive as possible.
My deepest thanks to…
