Thank god its not the dangerous one. Prayers for him though and his family. I hope it stays that way!
BJ fired the WH doctor who wanted to see those records prior to giving him an "allergy shot". (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.)
Read the thread... there are folks who have survived 30 years plus.
Neil was just on now- showing part of his interview with Fred...he followed up by saying Fred brought this up to get it out in the public- see how the public reacts to it...and then....if we don’t freak out...he “just might run”
WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO FRED!!!!
God BLESS this man and his family..
Attempt to make a political point about Fred’s illness from a Mitt supporter.
Well she might have a hidden snuke.
Thompson: “I have a normal life expectancy and feel fine.”
So, should he just sit at home and wait to die? We’re ALL dying day by day and like Thompson said, NO ONE CAN TELL THE FUTURE!
God bless Fred. I will add him to my prayer list behind Tony Snow, Elizabeth Edwards and Tammy Faye Messner.
I hope he gets the treatment he needs and will do what is best for him and his family and not let overzealous people try to force him to do anything that might be detramental to his health. Now is the time for rest and recuperation.
I hope everything works out well for him. There are many different types of lymphomas which different treatment procedures and with different prognoses.
And some people are quick to judge others based on little information, and you are one of them.
Yeah, he didn’t want the world to know exactly WHY he ah, swings to the left.
That’s what I think, too.
ok......RUN FRED RUN!!!!!!!!!!
Hodgkins is actually the only curable lymphoma. IF I had to have cancer as an adult, Hodgkins lymphoma would be the ones I would choose
If it is Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia it is not that dramatic, my father was diagnosed with CLL more than 25 years ago.
It really does & gives me even more hope he will be running.
A level of decency and respect MUST prevail toward ALL our potential candidates. Political passions are fine but it's really been inappropriately ugly here on some threads IMO. I hope it stops.
“Attempt to make a political point about Freds illness from a Mitt supporter.”
If you read my old posts, you would see that I’m supporting Fred since I don’t think Mitt can win.
And please dispense with the “let’s not talk about politics” issue- this disease doesn’t look serious enough to be considered a real personal tragedy, but it does look serious enough to be a political hindrance. Fred brought the news into the political arena this morning- he made it public.
Another testimony of hope!
