Damn, have been away too for a year or so. He was always posting and being inspiring, he will be sorely missed

Apologies for being crass, but I believe I speak for all of us when I say this.

I have a very small pendant necklace with those very words on it which I wear to follow-up chemo.

Stay on top of it!
Never Give up!
Use whatever you need to to get thru it!
I had a colleague who got sick, waited too long, (hated doctors) got it removed, quit chemo early,
refused to try cannabis to get thru it (he did not want to set a bad sample for his kid)
And died.
And I am still angry at him.
And his kid may have had a "non cannabis example" but doesn't have a dad.
Hmm 8 years ago?
I am still working thru it and trying to forgive him in my head for both his sake and my sake
( It's sort of a Buddhist thing)

So Keep Fighting It!

Seconded (fourthed?).
From my experience of curing 'incurable' cancer, eating loads of your favourite foods (blueberries and custard creams in my case) keeps your weight and spirits up, both of which help.
Doing a comedy podcast helped too, but not everyone has that sense of humour.

Don't give up and we'll all help celebrate your all clear within the year!
I speak in syllabubbles. They rise to the surface by the force of levity and pop out of my mouth unneeded and unheeded.

Holy shit. I knew I missed a lot while I was gone but this... This hits bloody heavier than anything else so far.

And yeah, I can only echo Laz and agree, fuck cancer with a rake. Sideways. Wide end first.

I'm just totally gutted by this.
Don't let these shakes go on, it's time we had a break from it. Send me to the rear! Where the Tides of Madness swell, and men sliding into Hell...

Oh please don't let these shakes go on...

Very sorry to read this. Though I don't contribute much, I do lurk periodically.  You are one of this family, and it's a sad loss.

Indeed it was sad. However it is good to see you are still around. You have been thought of and missed... welcome back.

Indeed, Grub, we didn't know you were hanging around!

I sort of feel our Mr Grubb only logged in to pay his respects.

I hope I am wrong and he will be back as a full time contributing member in tactile again.

I visit his blog at least once a week just to see what the old chap is up to since his dramatic leaving.

Good to see you here Grubby my friend, hope you are well.
