John's War with Melanoma
by Acidus on 2005-04-03 01:31:34-08
] This is a weblog of my current battle against stage IV
] (metastatic) melanoma. I'm John Hall, a 24 year old
] hacker/geek/pilot in southern California.
]
] One of my main purposes in blogging this is to alarm
] people into getting suspicious moles checked out by a
] doctor immediately. If you are even remotely concerned
] about anything on your skin, please make an appointment
] with a doctor today. You definitely won't regret it.

John "Reeves" Hall is a GT grad who was quite active in the LUG and se2600 scene before moving to California to write XBox games.

Though I haven't seen him for over a year, I am proud to call him my friend. Blogging his war takes balls, and we can all learn something from it.

I have been reading this regularly for awhile now. I got to go through many of the same experiences with my mother so I feel like I know him even though I have never met him.

John's War with Melanoma

] Congratulations, you have cancer! Your life is about to
] turn upside down. It causes a lot of stress, and many
] patients crash and burn horribly. Chemotherapy can save
] your life, but in the process it'll make you feel like
] you've been run over by a Hummer. Alternately, your
] doctors may choose to irradiate you in one of several
] ways, which is not altogether unlike being shoved into a
] microwave oven on "high" for a few minutes. Your
] medications probably won't make you feel better, so do
] yourself a favor and buy some weed. Get used to needles;
] you're going to be poked with a lot of them. Be strong,
] and you might live. Good luck!

I just got news yesterday that a good friend of mine has been diagnosed with lung cancer. He is going to be undergoing surgery to remove a tumor soon. The blues is in full effect.

It was good to read this and see that John is winning his war.. I hope my friend Rick wins his.
