Hi guys, i just want to let you know, i saw the consultant this afternoon. To cut a long story short, my cancer is incurable, without chemo, or if it doesnt work, i have about 7 months left, if treatment works really well, i might have 12 months. I intend to make the most of it and go fishing, go on days out, and holidays if i can. I will know next tuesday when treatment is going to start, but hopefully i will be able to go on the boat trip on the 16th if theres a place left. Well thats about it, except to say if anyones going fishing and want company give me a shout. Cheers..Mick

Hi Mick, I don't know you and I've never met you, but in the few weeks I've been on this forum your advice and help has been great, so thanks for making me welcome, It's hard to know what to say to someone in your situation, it's one of those thing you have to deal with in your own way and in your own time, but I'm sure you have the support of everyone on here including me,,

Regards Frank,,,

Hi Mick sorry to hear the news never had the pleasure of fishing with you but read your reports with great interest your enthusiaum shines through. My wife had cancer they gave her a 19% chance 10 years ago and she's still going strong so the doctors can get it wrong fingers crossed for you mate. In the mean time chin up and keep posting the reports as they informative and interesting.

Hi guys, thanks for the comments, and the PMs from squiddy, joli, and mrix. I know its difficult to know what to say, at the end of the day there really isnt much anyone can say. While its the worst news anyone can get, it doesnt mean ive changed, as rabbi2 will find out next time we meet. >:) >:) strange as it may seem, i'm perfectly ok with it, and quite at peace with myself, for the first time in 18 years i actually dont have a care in the world. So dont worry about what to say, just carry on as normal, i do, you should hear some of the jokes ive cracked when talking to the lung nurse, she thinks i'm crackers :D :D :D I have everything sorted now, i made all the arrangements weeks ago, so i'm free to just enjoy myself now, first on my wish list is a big cod 5lb plus. i'm also hoping to get off on a fishing holiday with rabbi2, tonight i'm going out for the first time in years, i cant remember the last time i had pie n peas on bonfire night. So, hopefully i will see you all at some point, and have a good fishing session. Oh, and it may look like i'm not online much now, but i login about 2doz times a day to read the posts, so watch your Ps n Qs >:) >:) Cheers everyone, and feel free to ask how i'm doing, i have good days as well. ..Mick

What can I say

Mick

unlike a lot of membes I have had the pleasure of fishing with you over the last 2 years and everytime we have met it has been nothing but a laugh.

Whilst I know it has been very hard for you since your wife died you have always tried to look on the bright side of life and from your posts it looks as if you will continue in this fashion.

Your knowledge and the amount of help you has given to hundreds if not thousands of members is I am sure appreciated by all.

I look forward to meeting up with you again before Xmas as I have some days to come

All the best
