Crap. I have cancer

This isn't easy to write. I'm not exactly sure why I'm writing this. I don't know if this is the "right" thing to do. But here goes. Yes, I have cancer. I'm pissed. I'm scared. I've cried. I've been having issues over several months and have visited the emergency room and my primary care doctor a few times. This week, I took it upon myself to visit a specialist. The news wasn't good. Yesterday's tests showed that I have a mass that looks to be cancer. Today's scans show that it looks like it spread. Fuck. I meet with a cancer specialist next week to plan a course of action. I was upbeat until I heard the news about it spreading and I visited google. Fuck. I wasn't ready to have a death sentence. I'm not ready to die. Geno's World has been so rewarding for me. I'm going to continue to run the site "as usual" as much as I can. (Yes, my last post was about Holly Madison's pregnancy.) Posting things like that make me feel "normal". :) Anyway, I kindly ask for your prayers, good thoughts and your support. Please continue to support the site and the charities that I promote. My friends and supporters have made my life a great one. I need you more than ever now. Thanks for being there!

I found myself thinking about James Morrison's boy Seamus and his courageous battle. Seamus, I am using you as my hope. Your courage and strength were always inspiring to me. Now even more so.

Read this before you get too depressed: "Curcumin and Cancer Cells: How Many Ways Can Curry Kill Tumor Cells Selectively?" http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2758121/ Note the "NIHdotGOV" in the link - this comes from a US Government Science Database. Also watch: http://youtu.be/NukHpVoAV0g And visit: http://orthomolecular.org/resources/pract.shtml#us to find where you can receive IV-C Treatments. If you're in the LA area, you can find at least one clinic where you can get it, it works, they cured me of Metastatic Melanoma (w/3month prognosis 18 months ago). I'm fine, both Curcumin(w/piperine, avail @ vitamin shops) and IV-C work.

This hit me pretty hard since I just went through a battle with a good friend who had lymphoma. Great news is she is cancer free. I need your humor, love and caring heart for many years to come. Your not going anywhere and I still expect you to be the smart ass that I have come to know and love. It is scary and its ok to cry and be scared but it is not ok to stop fighting. I will come out there and kick your ass before I let you stop fighting! Now grab your dog and snuggle for 10 minutes then get back on here and post some gossip!

I never post here before, we talked a couple of times on twitter in the past, but with reading this news i had to comment and say hang in there Geno, Cancer sucks (lost my mom to it sadly). I hope you're going to beat it and that you can say, fuck you cancer you don't get me down. Sending good and positive thoughts your way and keeping you in my mind and prayers. I stand up for you, Geno.
