Mark, I feel for you and your family. I am a 2 time cancer survivor, so it can be done. The fatigue will go away over time. Music helped me get through the rough times. I put on a set of headphones and put on my favorites. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Default Derek!!!

Derek, I am so glad you are still active on here! I still think about the awesomeness of the "Secret Santa" cards you gave me! They are still in my collection!!!

Posts like this make me think long and hard about life and what would happen should I pass. I am 40 and have a wife, 4-year old son, and 1-year old daughter. I can't imagine leaving them behind. I have spent the past three weeks seriously considering a complete sale of my collection, and a post like this makes me think I should make the move sooner rather than later.

You and I have done many deals together in the past. I can vouch for Mark if someone is looking to get a deal done with him for his collection.

All the best to you and your family on this extremely difficult journey. I hope you kick cancer's a$$ and make a full, speedy recovery! Either way, Mark, you are in my thoughts and prayers!

Regards,
Derek

I was alerted to Mark's post by several hobby friends and glad they did so.

Rich = You can send me a PayPal invoice at my jeff.verrier@gmail.com PayPal address and I'll personally pay Mark's table fees for any upcoming show he chooses your running.

Considering the friendship we developed while he was the director of BGS grading = I'll handle any expense he incurs table wise. He did me enough favors over the years to warrant me returning any favor he needs back.

I was wondering why the silence. Guess now I know.

Rich send me your mailing address again I have another batch of items to mail for the kids freebies at the shows ( tons of game used/autos).

I'll also donate some unopened Beckett Price Guides ( the big ones) for raffle prizes. Just shoot over the address please again so I don't have to dig it up.

Jeff

I am so sorry, I replied to all of this two days ago but it doesn't seem to have worked.

I just wanted to thank all of you for the amazing help and concern. You are a wonderful group.

I would normally take time to reply to all of you, but I'm afraid the "brain fatigue" or "chemotherapy fatigue" plus DVT's are absolutely killing me. As in... God had me feeling so great around Sept. 1st, then I did the final chemo, and 2 weeks afterwards I have truly wanted the Lord to take me home. I can barely walk, can't sleep, have no desire to do anything (or any energy), and there is basically no cure. Some people take a few months; others a few years. I continue to pray God will bring me healing faster than usual, and I hope to then be able to reply to all of you.

Many blessings to every one of you!
Mark

Again, not a message to say I suddenly feel any better. Still praying throughout every day that God will heal me. But I do have to admit that I am kind of finding that when I spend 24 hours sitting in a hotel bed, it sucks beyond anything... but when people ask me to do something (granted, that means sitting in a couch, eating out, other simple things, etc.), while I feel like a useless, horrible person, it does help me feel a little better.

I have a couple of appointments tomorrow (Monday), but might be free Tuesday or Wednesday. Would love to see anyone who wants to and understands I am 90% vegetable at this point!

Still waiting for my cards to be able to get that side going, too.

Wish you the best of luck finding someone to hang out with. If I was closer I would love to talk to you. With you history in the hobby you have to have some awesome stories to share.

From personal experience with my dad. I drove him 5 days a week for 6 weeks of chemo and/or radiation treatments to the closest hospital 50 miles away. The last 2 weeks he could hardly make it to the car before falling asleep. It took him close to a year to get back to kinda normal. He said the same thing about hating to do anything at first because after a few minutes of anything he was so tired he would just fall asleep in the middle of stuff. Now that it was a few years ago he says how the little things at first really helped him regain his strength. Without it he would have just laid around and taken much longer to get better. I wish you the best Mark.
