Rumors and questions concerning my friend Brad's health have been circulating the internet recently. Rather than allow speculation to run rampant, here in his own words is what's up with our Publisher.


Gratitude

An Announcement

from the Publisher

2019 changed my life, whatís left of it. Entered this year with prostate cancer, and side issues. The cancer was too far along for surgery. This means chemistry and radiation. If Iíd waited any longer to go to a doctor, probably wouldnít be here now. Iím paying the price for ignoring symptoms that were serious for a Senior Citizen. If an older man reading this takes heed in his own life, that would be a good thing.

The good news is the remarkable medical advances in recent years. I wouldnít stand a chance otherwise. Iím grateful to my urologist, oncologist and radiologist. And others.

The gratitude doesnít end there. At times like this the good wishes of others mean everything. Iím rich in good will. Although not a religious person, Iím not turning down prayers. My thanks to everyone who cares.
