Endurance Tests

Cancer is an endurance test. One thing I have learnt since my diagnosis, is that to enable good health and a continuance of life, one has to put in the training and endure all the shit cancer throws at you. You get your rest, take your supplements, work out the brain, set targets and hope that you will reach the finish line intact.

Eleven months or so ago, when somebody told me they were planning to do an endurance test of their own, I thought I would have long finished this particular test of my own. Long finished. That has not been the case. My test goes on and nobody know when that will finish and that fact makes us all sigh. Sigh.

Tomorrow, it is the Ironman Wales. Wales is a country in the United Kingdom FYI. I won’t tell you all about it again, because I already did that once before (https://ejbones.wordpress.com/tag/myeloma-uk/), when I asked you for your money then. In short, Neil will be swimming, cycling and running tomorrow to raise money for Myeloma UK. It is an endurance test indeed, especially because his wife has just had a 15 day old baby.

So, right now, to assist similar people who are currently on the endurance test that is myeloma, I am asking for your money again.

Oh, and good luck Neil!

    It’s not an Ironman but last October we did the walk for the Leukemia, Lymphoma Society which raises money for all blood cancers including Myeloma. They are the ones who reached out to my daughter when she was first diagnosed. Last year Sara did not walk because she did not have the strength after just having her transplant. She sat on the steps of the Art Museum in Philadelphia. Yes the same steps Rocky Balboa ran up in the movie Rocky.Every time I see those steps I hear that music.
    This year Sara will be walking with all of us who support her. What a difference a year makes.
