We are hoping to start looking next fall in the Tampa Area, I think I wrote in an earlier post that we are from Indianapolis Indiana, but we have traveled many years to Florida and had a home for awhile in Davenport just 8 miles due west of Animal Kingdom it is called the 4 corners (because it is on 4 county lines).
I have been on Gleevec since 2005 and am 64 years old. Yes if I am still doing good, next year I would like to live the last of my years my the beautiful beach and sunset. We have Crypt back here and I guess we could just fly our bodies back home, I think that is how it is done. We so........ love the beaches!!!
When we move I can find out all about the CML doctor at Moffitt from you guys.
I also mentioned my brother-in-law, Jerry has been going to Moffitt since 2006, with osteo sarcoma, a childhood cancer. He was 69 years old. A retired airforce vet who took excellent care of himself. He came back to Indiana when diagnosed for his daughter to help with him after they replaced the whole knee and cut off several inched of the muscles. My sister is not well her self and is not able to help much, in fact he pretty much takes care of her. He went right back to playing tennis, golf, and the ocean. However it came back twice and he had to surgery on 1 lung and some radiation on the other. He opted not to take anymore chemo, as when he was diagnosed the doc said they gave him the most chemo you could give any man as he was in good shape except for cancer. Anyhow chemo would only offer him a chance of 10% of not coming back. So the option of more chemo giving him less quality of life and only 10% chance, well he just said I go home, take my herbs and enjoy life.
