    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I have been diagnosed with stage one cancer. I have a 4' (9 cm) tumor on my pancreas. I am going in for surgery on Thursday 21st of July. I will have the tumor, my spleen, and my gallbladder removed. I will be in the hospital for about a week. Afterwards, I will "out of commision" for about 6 weeks (meaning I will be at home and have time to catch up on projects that I have not finished). I will keep everyone here updated on my condition and what all is going on.

    Though my post may seem late, I am in constant contact with Rhaven by phone or SKYPE. I have faith in his complete recovery. For you Chris:
