Default My Health

As many of you know I have been ill
I wanted to set the record straight for my friends and fellow hobbyists

I have lymphoma
It is Non Hodgkins Type B
I got it about a year ago
Quietly I went into chemo and quickly went into remission

Just as quietly it returned about 4 months ago
I have been having more aggressive chemo over the last few months
In a couple of weeks I go for the final step, a bone marrow transplant which will hopefully lick it for good

My attitude is good
My expectations are hopeful
Most of all I want to a thank you all for your support and kind words

Lelands has not missed a beat with me at diminished capacity
This year will be our best in over a decade (ironically)
Mike Heffner has had a banner year and is doing some of the biggest deals of his career
He has taken the step forward I always knew he could and would
Sharon and Laura have further filled the void with their loyalty, hard work and professionalism
I feel blessed

I work every day, I feel good
My mom has been taking very good care of me
I will be fine
If not, I will still be fine

All my best
Josh Evans

Josh, I had the same thing as you a year ago and beat it.
In fact I'll be seeing my encologist tomorrow for a periodic checkup.
You too can beat it again, there are over 12 million cancer survivors
I'll be praying for you to see better days ahead. All the best!
