Speaking of - His daughter, Stephanie is a friend of mine - I've reached out but have not heard back yet - I am sure they are processing just yet...But it sounds like from the Gazette story that it is at the base of his tongue and has a good cure rate. (Maybe the same info as in @IllaZilla link from the Mill City Fishwrap (But I can read that one - I'm all out of freebies)
On another side note - Pointu is a hockey hero of mine as a member of the Flying Frenchmen's "Big Three" With Sa
But like I told Stephanie - I am loathe for people who say things like "It's a good cancer to have" GRRR! - NO Cancer is good to have.
People tell me that all the time when they find out I have prostate cancer (Oh, at least if you have cancer - that's a good one to have") HUH??? ... it makes me want to slap them (but I realize people don't know what to say)
Anyway I heard back - she appreciates the prayers.
