I want to apologize for not posting here at Cancer News for two months. Despite my inactivity here, lots has happened in the world of cancer therapy and research.
I'm a busy guy these days. I just returned from New Orleans, where I covered the annual American Society of Hematology (ASH) meetings on behalf of the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF). I'm now busy sorting through hundreds of abstracts and writing about what I heard and saw in the massive convention center on the banks of the Mississippi River.
My wife helps me organize and manage four different cancer related websites: www.HelpWithCancer.org, www.MultipleMyelomaBlog.com, www.MyelomaNews.com and this site, CancerNews.US. But even with Pattie's help, I'm having trouble keeping up.
To be honest, I'm facing some health related challenges these days, too. My bone marrow cancer (multiple myeloma) has relapsed for the third time. Between undergoing therapy, seeing specialists, driving to and from appointments and sitting in waiting rooms, I spend up to 15 hours a week dealing with my own health care.
So I've made a difficult decision. This site has never been a priority. A great idea, but not unlike someone who bellies up to a buffet only to learn that his eyes were bigger than his stomach. I simply don't have time to do CancerNews.US justice.
So I've decided to focus on our five year old www.HelpWithCancer.org site instead. Primarily focused on healthy living tips and how best to use anticancer supplements, I will try and include more general cancer related news on HWC now--the type of things I would have covered here.
I want to wish all of our readers my best. Good luck to all of you with your cancer journey!
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
