Every survivor looks great, no matter the appearance

Social Current See : Following the survivors on the Facebook page Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Just made a comment on the FB wall of Douglas Mancebo, who is concerned about his physical appearance (the Kojack look) and advised him:

Don’t sweat the appearance of all your friends because they should not sweat yours. In 2007, I showed up at the wedding to give away my youngest daughter. Had a tumor in my left jaw the size of a orange and was bald as a billard ball. But alive and a few months away from an SCT that keeps me alive almost 6 years later. Those who care about you are just happy to see you. Those who don’t like your appearance can hang out somewhere else.

After I came out of isolation following my SCT and sometimes prior, when I saw people I hadn’t seen in awhile they often said, “Great to see you!”  My usual response was, “Great to be seen!”

#stemcell : the social current see today

5.8.25* : You would expect my interest in this hashtag to be constant since my August 2007 stem cell transplant, but it has been awhile since I updated my “follow” list in this category. So, today, I finished that update on TWITTER with these results.  }:{ Also see CANSWERIST  * 5 years, 8 months, 25 days since my SCT
