    I hate making threads like this, but I'm struggling to keep my mind off stuff, especially today.

    The day after Mother's Day, my mother (59) was informed she has breast cancer. After nearly two months of bullshit doctor visits, numerous tests, and thousands upon thousands of dollars of crap biopsys, scans, and bloodwork ... my mother goes in to surgery today at 5pm EST.

    The best news that we can hope for right now is that in her lymphnodes, there is nothing there. That the cancer hasn't spread. If it's in her lymphnodes, well, then this is just the beginning of a super long battle that doesn't look promising to win. We'll know as soon as her surgery is over if the cancer is in her lymphnodes.

    If you guys could keep your fingers crossed, or do whatever it is that you do, I'd appreciate it. This is why I've been so asshole the last month or so, why I haven't even touched my own sales thread, or anything of the sort. My mother's battle with breast cancer has consumed me, to the point my only resort at the end of the day is to drink.

    My mom has gone through so much medical bullshit in her life, she doesn't need this on top of everything else. The best thing that could happen is that this surgery and a little bit of kemo/radiation fixes it ... so please keep her in your thoughts, or say a prayer if you're the type, or cross your fingers, whatever.

    Thanks guys. If you know my cell, you know how to reach me.

    Stay strong, and I'm sorry you have to deal with something this serious - especially happening to your own mother. I wish her a smooth recovery. Having known women who have fought breast cancer (and won!), their strength is impressive and inspiring.

    Best of luck to your mother and the rest of your family Chris. As a person who's had three major surgeries himself, it is vital to have all the encouragement and support of friends and family. Know that we'll always be here for you in support.

    My grandma was diagnosed with breast cancer not too long ago. It was a terrible experience at first, but we all got through it together. I'm terribly sorry to hear about your mother, but possibly the best thing you can do is let her know you're there for her if she needs anything. Obviously you're close, and this is definately no time to break that. Be there for her, remember the good times, do whatever it takes to keep her happy, and in the meantime, you're in my thoughts and prayers. Keep us updated, man.

    I hope things go well for your mom Kicky. My mom is also wrestling with the same disease, so I know it's not easy. I'll be keeping you in my prayers.
