Our good friend and moderator Seeso has been diagnosed with cancer. If you've never met him, he is a one of a kind, a great person, full of life, love and music. He will be undergoing treatment this winter, please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

My wife and I have both been there and done that (she's still got the 5 year sword dangling over her head.) What most people don't understand is no matter how good your survival rate is or how little you have to pay (thank you Kaiser) it still sucks big time. Getting treatment for it really knocks the snot out of you regardless how good the treatments are and you're a different person afterward.

My best wishes.

Gary's right, we do come out a changed person. We get to chose who that person is. Its too bad we have to go thru what it takes to be that person.

You've been diagnosed; the first step towards healing. Knowing your attitude and perservarance, you'll get thru this. My thoughts and prayers to you my brother

I'm sending healing thoughts to Seeso.

Aside from prayers and thoughts, there's the link Mike posted at the beginning of this thread to a gofundme page that was set up to help Seeso pay for his treatment. My understanding is that Seeso's insurance will cover a lot of his medical expenses but not all of them (I think on FB someone said Seeso might be on the hook for about 20 percent of the costs of treatment),and the gofundme page points out that his chemotherapy and radiation treatments will make it harder for him to earn money during treatment. So Seeso will need our financial support as well as our emotional and spiritual support.

Thanks, Mike, for posting the link to the gofundme page.

Despite having never met Seeso, to me, he is a legend here on UU, as well as in the larger ukulele community.

I wish for a fast healing, little suffering, and lots of happiness on the other side of this process, and for life to always be getting better for Seeso.

Get well brother, and hope to meet you one day! You will be in my prayers and thoughts.

Yesterday he posted on FB asking for nude pics (I assume ladies') saying c'mon, I have cancer! He was grinning.
He was at TBUG 2015, and was a sheer delight.

Thanks for the info Nickie.

Seems he has not lost his sense of humor, nor libido, which to me are signs of him retaining a positive outlook, and important to 'make it through' this crucible.

Go Go Seeso!

Keeping positive is vital. When one of the tutors on my daughter's course suggested she suspend while being treated, her medical team were aghast. They said keeping going was the best thing she could do as it gives her something positive and all the evidence suggests the outcomes are better among those who keep going and have something positive to do. She did keep going and her tutors have actually been very supportive. She's also had very little time off and has kept up with her work.

So, Seeso stay positive and keep going and it will work out well.

Thanks, Patrick. I like your comment about getting to choose who that person is. It puts more control in my hands, which is something I don't have a lot of lately.

So sorry for the late reply to this thread. Thanks so much for creating the thread, Mike. And thanks so much to everyone for their well wishes, thoughts and prayers, and useful advice. And my undying gratitude to those who have donated to the fund. It really means so much to me and family.

I'm feeling pretty darn good today. If anyone feels like sending me a Facebook friend request, I usually post updates after major events on my profile. I'm at https://www.facebook.com/seesolobo.

Peace and love, y'all!
