CIRCA 30-YEARS AGO . . . I HAD A BATTLE WITH CANCER – I WON!
This Isn’t About My Health. It’s About Our Health. And It Isn’t About Cancer.
There Was A Longtime Swelling On The LEFT Side Of My Neck (Throat), which I Believed was Nothing More than a Fatty Deposit, which was Developing because I was Gaining Weight, Until a Dentist Friend of my Sister & Brother-In-Law pulled me Aside at a Cocktail Party Anne & I were Hosting in our Home, And Told Me . . . “Don’t Wait – See A Doctor About The Swelling”.
I Didn’t Take The Dentist Seriously For Several Reasons.
One – I Had no Pain where the Swelling was. Two – I was Gaining Weight, and I was all but Certain that was the Cause of the Swelling. Three – I Had No Symptoms Other than the Swelling. And Lastly . . . The Swelling Had Been With Me For So Long Before The Dentist Said Anything, That I Hardly Ever Noticed-It.
I Wasn’t Going To See A Doctor Because I Didn’t See A Problem . . . But Anne Did.
And Whether I Liked-It or Not, Anne was Going to be Bringing Me to the Doctor if She Had to Knock-Me-Out & Personally Drag Me to the Medical Center.
I’m Going To Make A Long Story Short.
Being Canadian, Even 30-Years Ago – Meant that Prompt Visits to Doctors & Medical Testing Could take Months to Arrange, because of Canada’s Socialized Medicare System that Forbids Most Private Healthcare.
Not To Be Deterred . . . Anne Was Not Taking Delay For An Answer.
And Because Of Anne, What should Have Taken Months to Diagnose, Took a Few Weeks. And Again – Because Of Anne . . . Surgery & Cancer Treatment Happened Within One Week After Diagnosis.
After The Surgery . . . The Prognosis Was Startling.
What the Surgeons & Oncologists Initially Assumed from the Tumor that was Removed from My Neck, Was That It Was Benign, that Once Removed, there would be No Consequence Other than a Standard Recovery from Surgery . . . But Within This Benign Tumor, Unbeknownst to the Surgeons & Oncologists, they Discovered an Extremely Aggressive Malignant Tumor About to Breach (Break-Out) and Metastasize.
RECOVERY WAS A LONG PAINFUL ROAD . . . THE ALTERNATIVE WAS DEATH:
How Far Was The Malignant Tumor From Breaking-Out? . . . Measure It In Microns.
HOW LONG WAS THIS THING GROWING IN MY BODY?
The Bottom Line Was This . . . Had the Dentist Not Insisted that I See my Family Doctor. Had my Family Doctor Not Sent me to an Ear, Nose & Throat Specialist. And Had Anne Not Acted as Aggressively as She Did – to Insist & Advocate for an Immediate Diagnosis & Treatment . . . I Would Have Died Within Two Weeks Once The Malignant Tumor Escaped The Benign Tumor & Metastasized From My Neck To My Lungs.
Answer To The Immediate Preceding Question . . . According to the Surgeon, the Oncologist and the Radiologist, the Benign Tumor that Caused the Swelling was the Size of a Montreal Bagel, and the Malignant Tumor were Probably in my Neck (Throat) for a Substantial Number of Years.
I Never Saw It Coming . . . And When I Did – I Didn’t Want To Admit-It.
WE ARE CLOSE TO OUR POLITICAL SICKNESS METASTASIZING:
I Didn’t See The Writing On The Wall & I Almost Died.
As Much As I & Others Are Ringing The Warning Bells, it Seems to Me, that there is a Massive Number of People Within our Populations who are Avoiding our Political Disease, while in the Background, Just Like A Cancer . . . It’s Treatable Before It Isn’t As It Metastasizes.
I Don’t Know If We’ve Already Crossed The Rubicon . . . But if we Haven’t Yet Crossed the Point of No Return, We’re at that Point where we are Just One or Two Steps Away. And if we Cross the Line, it will be a Political Cancer that Has Metastasized where the Prognosis is Nothing Like we Want to Contemplate.
Through Luck, Advice & Anne’s Unstoppable Advocacy I Came Microns From Crossing The Rubicon.
WILL WE BE FORTUNATE WITH THE SICKNESS THAT PERMEATES OUR SOCIETIES?
I Can’t Begin To List The Litany Of Communist One World Challenges . . . From Where they Begin & Where they End, Other than to Write . . . If The Side Of Freedom Does Not Address This Political Metastasis, Before the Prognosis is Cast in Stone, Everything our Ancestors Struggled & Sacrificed to Pass-On to the Next Generations Will End In Oblivion.
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT-IT . . . WE ARE NOT IMMUNE:
About 150-Years Ago, America Fought A Bloody Civil War Which Even Today Resonates With American Progeny. And as Bad as Was the War Between the South and the North . . . The Coming Revolution Will Be That Much Worse.
And Make No Mistake About-It . . . This Time it will Not just be a War Between the American States, as Much as it will be a War Between the LEFT & THE RIGHT.
It Will Be A War Of Ideologies Between Real Individual Freedoms & The Rule Of Tyranny . . .
It Won’t Be Contained On The Southern Side Of The 49th Parallel – Canada Will Not Be Immune.
As The Cancer Throughout The World Grows & Metastasizes, but Mostly in the United States of America & Canada . . . Our Choices Will Become Bleak.
Once I Recognized the Truth with Great Help from Strangers, Doctors, Friends, Family – And Mostly From Anne That I Had Cancer . . . I Did The Painful Things That I Had To Do To Survive.
BEFORE THE METASTASIS BECOMES IRREVERSIBLE . . .
Are You Ready To Do What Has To Be Done, So We Won’t Cross The Rubicon?
