Do you have far to travel to get to Sydney if I may ask?

Sorry to hear he is unwell,  but he isn't so far away and Dr Time is a good physician.

The cancer shit keeps going. My younger 43yo brother diagnosed with throat cancer today, like leukimea. Result of particles entering his system due to his military activities. Pretty upset, thought you guys deserve an update.

Would that be the depleted uranium used in the bullets?

Maxx-likely, I am not sure what he was exposed to, but whatever it was, has deemed to be life threatening outside of combat.

Moby- thank you, the family is rallying behind him and hoping his treatment will extend his life.
