    I know alot of you know about me and my cancer. How I went though lots of treatment and an operation and by January this year I was put into remission.

    A couple of months ago I got the worst news about how it has come back and also that it was terminal. They can only try and keep me comfortable.
    I have a big lump on my left side which is on the ribs, a small one on my right side which again is on a rib, I have a few lumps on my skull which are small, a few tiny marks in one of my lungs and I've also had some radiotherapy for some which I have on my spine. These have eased off a little now but one is on a nerve which has made my left leg weak. Should get better soon.

    I just thought I'd let you all know what was going on and that even through this I'm still here and upbeat and smiling most of the time. I wont let it get me down.

    Thanks for reading.

    All I can say is all the best, although I really want to swear.

    Dunno what to say mate :( My girlfriends dad died a few weeks ago from terminal cancer. If it's any consolation, he lived for three and a half years after the doctors told him it would be 2 months. They aren't always right.

    Erm, woah. Can't really respond to that.

    You can always fight it, though. Best of luck...

    Well I've been to a couple of Ferrari track days lately. Should be going to Silverstone on the 9th September where I shall get some more rides in them.

    Hoping to go to Maranello, Italy to see the Ferrari Factory in October as long as I'm well enough.

    We'll just see how it goes atm. I might be starting some low dose chemotharapy tablets soon which should keep it subsided a bit.

    Dude, that's absolutely horrible...

    I was aware you had cancer but thought it had died out.. It really is a shock. :(

    What form of it do you have, am I right in saying skin?
