August 2018. 

When I arrived in France a tumor had started growing on my leg. It was removed in Gourdon, the size of a tennis ball, and left a 5 inch scar. A biopsy wish inconclusive but indicated a grave cancer, T-cell lymphoma, and we returned to CA for treatment. Chemotherapy began in October. A biopsy done at Stanford indicated AKL-negative anaplastic large-cell lymphoma: very rare, 3 cases/million people/year; very aggressive, 50% die in 3 years. My friend Bud was also undergoing chemotherapy so we decided to meet weekly for lunch.

A scan done December 1st indicated my cancer had been cured, but chemotherapy is continuing.
