    Thank you for posting that, pacerron, and letting me, and the others here know. He was a great guy, and will be missed by many.

    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    (I moved this to it's own thread rather than have it posted in a unrelated for sale thread.)

    Jim was a long time member of TBN, one of the original gang from over 14 years or so ago. Jim bravely posted a thread on TBN over a year ago about having been diagnosed with breast cancer, and how it sought a doctors help about cheat pain before the diagnosis, he kept the TBN community updated all through the treatments-often with graphic details all because he wanted to help others not be ashamed if they where experiencing the same symptoms.

    Several members of TBN recently installed a lift at Jim's house because he could no longer navigate the stairs, in the thread linked above in the first post you can read what real friends can and will do for each other in times of need. It's a truly touching story, especially if you know some of the history behind it all.

    Yesterday, Saturday 9-7-14 at about 4:00pm Jim last his battle and went home to his maker. I can assure you that will be one packed funeral home and service with all the friends Jim has!

    RIP Jim.

    About 1 in 100 cases of Breast Ca occur in Men, it definitely can happen.

    Hopefully his honesty will help save someone in the future.....

    While I'm at it.....

    My Fiance, Megan (sports doc) and I (Surgeon), have hosted 2 years worth of a fundraiser at our acreage all aimed at what we initially called "Mental Health in Sport". What we didn't realize is that what we really meant is "Mental Health in Successful People". "Successful" does NOT equal rich - successful mean different things to different people. This past year Megan, I, our friend Darryl (a former Detroit Red Wing), and Devon (a good friend and ferrier, Journeyman Welder, and Sheet Metal-smith) sat in front of about 100 folks and spoke openly about what has driven us to the good places in that we each are in now, and the lows along the way.

    I have a vague hypothesis/question about whether it is our success that makes some of us anxious and depressive, or is it our anxiety/depressiveness that leads to our drive for success..... I dunno, but I'm workin on it.

    Anyways, why I bring this up is because it seems that Jinman said "afvckk!t" and told everyone about what some/most would've taken as an embarrassing diagnosis - breast cancer in a man. I bet it was his hope that talking openly about it will prevent someone from the same path in future, and that's exactly why the 4 of us spoke at our fundraiser.

    Anyways, there's my rant, from my soapbox - the soapbox that will soon be used to help me up to the first step of my new 5075M!!!! Thursday or Friday!!!

    Here is the link to the obit. Someone else was kind enough to make sure that I received it. There is also a video on it. But don't watch in public. Let's just say my allergies are making my eyes water like mad!

    Five or six years ago, I had a "lump". I had to have a mammogram (female technician was very nice and scheduled me so there would only be she and I there at the time). After that it was a biopsy (sp?). All turned out negative, but I have to tell you, after being through a lot in my life, that incident scared the hell out of me. I have used my experience to try to influence reluctant females to get checked. At my age, the filter between my brain and mouth is pretty much inoperative, so it is much easier to talk about stuff like that. I can't tell you the feeling of relief when the doctor told me the biopsy was negative.

    I didn't know Jim, but if any of you, male or female, find anything that doesn't seem just right, get to the doc. I'm sure that Jim would say the same as I.

    I think the mammograms are a double edged sword. While they may detect something, they also expose you to radiation. If it was a one time only event, might not be so bad, but yearly, I am not convinced. I've known several people that have battled breast cancer. All of them found the lump themselves, 3-5 months AFTER having a mammogram done, that came back CLEAN. I think that stresses the importance of self exams. Jinman had noticed his own lump, well over a year ago, but he didn't think it that important, and it was garden and harvest, canning and freezing season, so waited until it was more convenient.

    If any of you are looking for the earliest detection, see if you can find a location doing thermograms. You may have to drive to a larger city to find one. Thermograms will actually detect an area of warmth, as the blood supply is being laid down to feed a cancer, BEFORE you can feel the lump, OR a mammogram can detect it. And, there is no radiation, so no cumulative effect on the body. Also, thermography has been FDA approved for decades. But, GE doesn't make the money on the equipment the way they do the x-ray units, so it is hard to find a doctor that knows about the option, much less recommends it. Hard to believe, after all these years of being FDA approved, most docs haven't learned about it.

    So, as jinman would also say, take your healthcare into your own hands and learn, and do those self exams, and do not put it off, if you find something. The life you save may be your own, or the life of someone that you love.
