Re: SAILING with CANCER

Hi John,

I still haven't gotten around to building the 289FIA, but do spend a lot of time in NE Atlanta with my GrandAm cars.
Afew weeks ago we got the SouthEast region snake charmers together, and took 9 427S/C and 2 Daytona Coupes up thru the Blue Ridge Parkway and Big Smoky.
Pulled some minor G's on some of the corners.
I told some of the guys that we talk over here on CF, and you're still part of the crew

Re: SAILING with CANCER

85 300z - Just loved that car! What a pleasure to drive. Held the road and fast. Wife's window stopped going done and she told me to sell it. I think I should have sold her. Driving a RX8 now because it held the road like the Z. Had it over 100 mph and it was still climbing. Fast and held the road. It is up for sale. Do not need two cars.

Re: SAILING with CANCER

Talking Cars seems against the thread but they always make me smile. Even if it just the distance of time.
The Jaguar XK120 was a dream from the first time I saw one.
I grew up in Newport Pagnell, where the Aston Martin's were built. The DB4 and 6 were amazing cars.
And my best wishes go with you as your sail a graceful Cat in beautiful places. May the winds stay fair and warm.

Re: SAILING with CANCER

Hey, John. I hope you still have this aboard Imagine? I'll always relate the Mamas & the Papas music, to sailing the Caribbean under the moon and stars. Fair winds, my friend....

Re: SAILING with CANCER

Thanks for the compliment atoll.

Ralph I can't see the video here in the anchorage. Panama gives away free internet, but does not allow you tube. Is it possible this is from the night you hogged the whole night watch to yourself? I remember waking just before dawn wondering why we haven't been woke up. There you were still on watch with the biggest grin on your face.....hehehehehehehe.....i2f

SAD NEWS

I received an email from Melanie on New Year's Eve, giving an update on John's health. She has updated their blog with the sad news -

John going back to USA



Hello Friends..

John's health have deteriorated and he was confined in Panama Sto.Tomas hospital. His tumor came back in the neck and is now experiencing tremendous pain without the relief of pain relievers. It has occur to me as a wife to get him in Panama and bring him back to USA. The Panama doctors were unable to help him over here and has suggested he came back to USA. His fighting till the end. As for the boat, we are forced to leave it in Panama under the care of Taboga Moorings by Chuy and Susan, same couple that watched over our boat last year when John went to UCSF for his chemo and radiation treatments.

Right now our plan is for him to get back to USA and see what is his other options. We are looking forward to sell the boat to help us out for the medical cost and perhaps keep us a float in this situation. Both our savings have been drain as well our friends and family. We cannot sell the boat in Panama unless someone is willing to pay for its price or atleast a decent price on how much she is worth. Our only hope that our friend will be able to bring the boat back in the US soil as soon as we get situated in USA. However to do this we need some finances to make it work for the boat to cross the canal and get it back to Florida. We have the crew to make it but we do not have the funds and working on it to raise it.


I am hoping John will respond to macrobiotic as others respond well on this. Only miracles is all I can hope and pray and God to watch over him when time is near. Not much to say but alot of prayers and hope we have all the strenght to face what is ahead and able to resolve issues. John's fear is that the boat will be wasted in Panama and unable to secure whats left on us. Right now, it has been a challenge for us and without our friends, families and supporters I will think that life wouldnt have taken us this far.

Thanks to all.
