    I just got a tattoo. As you can see, it is a BSG squadron patch. This a closing chapter on battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Not only that, but it is to honour Richard Hatch - Actor who died from Pancreatic Cancer.

    Here is the outline.

    Really wraps things up. A bold statement that I am sure people will comment on, seeing that it is at eye level of most people. ;)

    We (doctors...) are fighting very hard against this bad enemy. I am member of a senology multidisciplinar workgroup as a cytologist. Speaking about breast cancer, even if the war isn't over, we are seeing new goals reached every day. Every single case is a separate story but many of those stories today, many more than in past years, has a good end. The crucial point is early detection, we now find more cancers than in the past but we find them very sooner, when they are enough little to be eradicated with surgery and aimed therapies, often conducted toward specific genic targets. The result is we obtain many more complete healings than in the past. The war to fight is still long but we can do it.
    But remember: always partecipate in cancer screening programmes, it's the best thing you can do for yourself.

    A big hug to you @Rhaven Blaack for your great strenght in this hard battle!

    Thank you one and all for EVERYTHING!
    Because of all of you, this is one of the reasons why this forum is so AMAZING!
    Your thoughts, your prayers, your words of encouragement, all mean a great deal to me! Granted, we may have never met face-to-face, but still consider you my friends and family! I hope that one day, I can meet each of you (or at least as many as I can), before it is my time to go.
    Once again, THANK YOU!!!
