"Roadtrip!" is all I can think of saying...


Ugh.
That's rough.
We can only hope to live in your spirit of goodwill and cheer, Stu.
Thanks for the Cars movie 'The King' key chain you sent me so many years ago.. it's got the '65 Satellite keys on it. Think of you every time.
Hope you've gotten enjoyment and weird looks when wearing our New England Moparts Cruise T-shirt.. it's only 13 years ago.
.
.
.
...anyway - gives me a strong urge to head out on a major road trip....

...heck, it's only 5,848 miles R/T.. take about 44 hours out I-90 to Chicago then 80 to Des Moines, Omaha, Cheyenne, Salt Lake City, Reno... have a non-alcoholic beer, then head back.

TBD.

Best,
- Art

Sorry to hear that, Stu.
It's happened before - someone is given a short duration then end up living actively for years.
My grandfather had multiple types of inoperable cancer and was told he has 2-4 months every couple of months for 5 years before he passed away.

Sorry to hear that Stu, you always seem like a Cool dude and gracious host. Enjoy life to the fullest, good chance you will outlive the prognosis, especially with a positive attitude. When you feel good, jump in the RR and take the wife out to dinner or just a nice cruise, would love to see you show up at Fall Fling if you could make it down. Good luck, Prayers sent.

I am speechless. Even though we have never met, we have spoken several time on the phone and I always considered you a class act.
Live and enjoy every day you have and one day I will have the privilege of shaking your hand and having a beer with you on the other side.

Stu as many have already said. You are Moparts kindest most generous member from what I have seen on here over the years. I do not post very often, and I'm at a loss for words. All I can say is keep fighting and know our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I’m so sorry to hear this. I don’t know a lot of guys in the general section but I wish you the best. Having watched my mother go through Brest cancer many years ago and then going through bone cancer and passing away in 2009 hate cancer. I have way to many friends fighting the fight right now and the list I swear grows weekly. God Bless you and your Family and remember you have good friends to lean on in your time of need.

Never met or conversed with you but we share at least one thing in common, Mopars. I am amazed at your courage to tell us all.

Please get all your affairs in order, allof them, if you get my drift.

Prayers for you and your family. Keep us posted.

Stu, so sorry for the prognosis. I have a good friend who was told he had six months to live. That was two years ago. Modern medicine is pretty miraculous. Keep strong, live life as much as you can. Prayers for you and your family.

I agree do not let them talk you into giving up!
I was stage 3! During I went in with an unknown Infection as you have no immunity. They finally got it under control I did not think I would leave there alive.
Then the Port had me with a blockage and nothing worked. Finally shots twice a day in the tummy fat layer that cost 1200 bucks each kept it at bay.
At 114 Pounds, not much Fat. LOL
The 3rd time I am not talking about!
Today I was 118.4 pounds. 5'5" tall and Boys size 16 pants. Or As my wife says if I was a "Female Junior size 3! She would love to fit in a size 3 LOL
Today for the 1st time in years I put on a respirator, got out the sandpaper and sanded some aluminum to polish.
I do feel like it is Putting a Square Peg in a Round Hole but that makes it more fun.
Do Not Give UP!

I always appreciated help and I know you did the same for countless others. Hopefully you can knock out some fun things while they are patching you back up.


Forever in debt to your priceless advice...

The little woman was diagnosed with lung cancer over 2 years ago and given a year to live. She went through radiation and a few rounds of chemo, then they put her on immunotherapy. She is now in remission according to the docs. She will go for another scan next month to be sure.
Moral to the story is they 'best guess' your remaining time and are not always right.
I, like the others here, wish the best for you.

I don't post that often on this site (even though I've been a member for about 15 years), but I check it out pretty often, and I've always enjoyed your posts, Stu. I'm genuinely sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Fight this thing with everything you've got, man! It ain't over 'til it's over. I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Hang in there, and make the most of every day.
