    I was diagnosed with Lung Cancer about three weeks ago. If you don;t see anymore Post's, you'll know I'm gone, hope to make it till October 13 so I can celebrate my 90th Birthday. No Chemo or Radiation.

    It's been a good ride and fun on here since 2009.

    Check the Market Place next week for diesel parts.

    Old Bull, I'm very sorry to hear that...

    I also believe chemo and radiation were ripoffs and actually hasten one's demise... Good on ya!

    I hope you do make it to your 90th birthday...

    When the day comes you'll be missed, it's been great having you around here. Until then you'll be in our thoughts and prayers.

    I am sorry to hear this OldBull8. I have never believed in the current cancer treatments. I have lost many friends to cancer. :(

    hell.....don't forget back in 2005 we thought Old Mr Bill's days were going to be numbered, it's 2018 and he's still with us.
    I'm always grateful elders like you are willing to share your knowledge with us. don't predict you doom so soon, you just might surprise yourself.
    and thank you for sharing.

    Bill, I am very sorry to hear your diagnosis. Thank you very much for all of your help over the years through this forum, not just to me, but for many members here. I can certainly understand you decision regarding the treatment. Those treatments will not allow you to enjoy the time you have with your loved ones.
