    This is really hard for me to share. Last Monday I was diagnoised with bladder cancer at the V.A. Hospitial in Fayetteville. They haven't done a biopsie but told me they could tell the tumor is malignant by viewing it with a scope. Anyway I am trying for a second opinion at Chapel Hill tomorrow. I don't want sympathy but would sure appreciate thoughts and prayer. I have overcome lots of trouble in my 59 years with the help of God and feel I can win this one with his help. Thanks

    UPDATE : Have been going down to Greenville all this month to ECMC for a lot of tests and some rough treatments. Have been really sick but things look a lot better than they did last month. Really glad I was able to get away from the V.A. medical system. Thanks everyone, Prayers do really work great wonders. I now feel I have a new lease on life and have the will to carry on ! Thanks again !

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. My dad was in a VA Hospital (Durham) for a while, The Doctors were great, the nurses were not. But this was over 10 years ago, but overall I am not a fan of VA hospitals.

    Hey Fred, they yanked a cancer out of my bladder while looking for kidney stones a couple of months or so ago. You'll get our prayers. Hang in there...
