I intended for this post to be about the past; how I got to today, how my tumor was discovered, and my subsequent surgery and recovery. I will get to those, but what is important to me right now is the future, not the past. I am about to enter radiation treatment to eliminate any trace of the cancer.

The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) has opened a proton beam therapy clinic and I received notice on Thursday that the province will fund my treatment there. On Friday evening I received my acceptance package from SCCA, after they were closed for the weekend. I will call them first thing Monday morning and get this started. This is the last hurdle. I need to embrace this and become cancer free.
