An Explorer's View of Life:
"When I finish my last injection of chemo, on Thursday February 18th at about 2pm Eastern Standard Time, I'm also ringing that damn bell!

As loud and as long as I can!

My cancer may not be cured. I may find myself back there again sometime, but for now, at least, I'm declaring victory. After all, you don't have to win the whole war before celebrating victory in battle."


dear Readers,
please join us at 2pm as we ring a bell for all those patients who are fighting against
impossible odds to get well.

hey, as Arlo Guthrie Would Say "what we got here is a Movement, yes sirree,
a movement: Barry's Ring-a-Bell for Triumph Over Impossible Odds Movement.

Ring that bell with joy and make sure to have an EOC party soonest afterwards too (End of Chemo).

I had my 5th treatment today and so impatient to have them all behind me.
