Thus far we've been fortunate to receive some local help from our Tulsa friends. Our major contributor in Tulsa, Lindsay, has helped us out with accommodation, transport and food... Thank you Lindsay!
In the background is Loren's cozy house, which she has kindly rented to us for a very affordable rate. Thank you Loren.
In the foreground is Lindsay's car, Beverley. Beverley and Lindsay get Dave and myself to and from Camelot Clinic every day. Thank you Beverley.
They have made this stage of the journey a little easier and all the more memorable.
To our lovely, helpful friends in Tulsa, Oklahoma, who have been so kind as to help us with this stage of Dave's treatment. Thank you.
Due to a snow storm we spent all of Christmas Day indoors with our Tulsa friend, Lindsay. The six and half inches of snow actually made national news. We later found out they had closed the whole state and had advised people to stay indoors. Which wasn't a bad idea, seeing as it was well below freezing outside...Merry Christmas!
Here is a little sneak peak at few of the clinic crusaders during mid treatment conversation... just a group a friendly people thinking outside of the cancer treatment box.
Sean, far right, makes regular posts on his experiences at Camelot Cancer Care. Check out Seans Cancer Journey for his daily updates.
Without knowing how things are going with progress of treatment we're just hanging in there, hoping for the best and taking on all the good vibes coming our way. They say healing comes in stages, at this stage we're putting our confidence in the DMSO protocol used at Camelot.
Overall it's a tough journey, and some of the decisions cancer patients and their families make are difficult, to say the least. However the decision to live is one that remains true during this whole process. It brings an energy and will that's indescribable. They include moments like the one in the photo below. Where by being in an environment with like-minded people with similar life experiences and more importantly... 'A love of life and a super human will to live' is something special.
