Default Just needed to let you guys in on some personal news

I just wanna say I love all of you guys and I consider you all to be part my dysfunctional online family. For several months now I have had a lump on bottom part of my neck, my wife finally noticed it and made me go to the doctor and it checked out. It has never bothered me or caused me any pain and I thought it was nothing. Well to make a long story short, it turns out that I have Thyroid cancer, it's scary don't get me wrong. But from what I've been told this type of cancer is completely manageable through surgery by removing the thyroid, lymphnodes and such. We haven't set a surgery date yet but it should be soon. This will be my first major surgery and it does scare me a little and so I ask you guys to please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I prepare myself to go through this. I'll give you updates when I can and I'll still post regularly when I can. But I'm gonna get though this and I appreciate you guys. God Bless y'all guys.

Horrible news. I'm very sorry to hear that Ray. Good luck on your surgery. Hopefully all goes well and you have a speedy recovery.

Is this similar to that TV host who had the lump spotted by one of their viewers?

Thanks guys, the one thing I have been told by the doctors and other people is that if you get any kind of cancer, this is the one that is 100% treatable, no chemo, just surgery and I will have to be on a radioactive pill for a week to kill the rest of the cells. I will a full CT scan to make sure it hasn't spread anywhere else, even if it has the radioactive pill will kill them, because this a slow non aggressive type of cancer. It's scary but it will be ok.
