Yesterday's news was the best adrenaline rush I've had in decades!

Thank you Fitz, GAJ, Ariel, Beaches, Matt, RHF, The amazing Dr James Freeman, Dr Debasis, Tim monkmed and evetybody I missed. One person that was the center of my treatment movement was Mike G. You my friend are an angel from Heaven, I have no ida how I found you other than Devine intervention. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough, but thank you is all I have.

Thank you all for guiding me, motivating me and then standing up for me and behind me. But most of all thank you for helping every new comer to this forum. I'm cured now but just a short time ago I wasn't and you were there. Again, thanks for the support it means so much to me that I'll do my best to pay it forward everyday and every way.
In good health all my friends and may God be with you always.

After all the hell Ive been through, after all my brothers dying in which my doctor knew, after all the money my insurance company has paid his clinic there was no mention of congratulations from him, no mention of good job, no mention of great program you found just the same email I got from his PA and him saying he signed them. Wow un frign real.
FYI, the entire time I was treating he never ever talked to me once, never said one personal word during the entire trials of Redemption. Disappointed, very disappointed.
So I wished him a Merry Christmas Fitz style. You can figure that one out! :)
