In June I posted an important update about Ron Miller and his website Powersweepstaking as his emails and sweeps slowly stopped. The reason, he had been diagnosed with lymphoma. Read the full post: Were you a Powersweepstaker?
There hasn’t been any news since then and I couldn’t reach him by phone either. He posted this on Facebook:
Spring turned to summer, summer to fall and now it’s winter; it’s been a long time and I’m sorry to say my condition is a rare one indeed. Took 3 months to receive the diagnosis of a rare type lymphoma; a non Hodgkin’s (worse news then Hodgkin’s) Tcell Lymphoma (most lymphomas are Bcell). So right now I’m in a research study testing two very worthy chemo drugs that have never been given together inHuman ’til now. It’s a study sponsored by the NIH. I’m doing the study, only because my first dozen rounds of CHOP(standard) chemotherapy did NOT work as hoped, so I had to join this study. I’m 4 weeks into it with a diagnostic petscan in 3 weeks… please keep all prayers coming. It’s a terminal cancer but my doc has given me a 50/50 shot; I like those odds and so I’ll win this! I am weak and sick so my time is very limited but I thought about sweeps as an outlet for now… the business end of sweeps will wait; now I just want to have fun…
My heart is breaking and I am praying. I will keep you updated.
