stand4hope Posted June 8, 2004 Share Posted June 8, 2004 Good morning everyone. Mawka is a man that has been posting on the Newcomers board and I got him to switch to NSCLC last night. He did post there. Mawka, like bean_si and some others here, is all alone and also trying to take care of an 87-yr-old stepmother. Mawka's medical condition at this time is quite severe. It may not all be cancer related, but he has the most severe back pain that they don't know yet if it is the cancer. I think his report called it "massive degeneration". He is also very heavily medicated because of this severe pain, which is apparent if you will read his posts. He has no family and his friends have walked out of his life. The reason for my post is I know that someone on here posted ideas on who Mawka can call to find someone in hisr area to help him get around, someone to check on him, etc. He is meeting with oncologists very soon, and hopefully they will also give him some advice. I have looked everywhere and can't find that post. I think one of the places you suggested was the American Cancer Society. Mawka lives in the St. Louis, Missouri area. Mo had begun to PM him just before Mo went into the hospital. I have Mawka's permission to ask all of you if you have any ideas who he can call to get some help. Mawka: One place I would suggest is your church. If you don't belong to a church, that's ok, get out the phone book and call a church that is close to you. Thank you everyone and GOD BLESS YOU!!
