Since the New Year, I had gotten news that 2 of my old riding bud's around the country have been diagnosed with cancer. Another in Texas was confirmed with MS. Today, another close friend, also an Ultra rider who has not been seen recently was announced as having been 2 weeks in the hospital taking Chemo. Today, we were told he has latter stage lung cancer that has metted to C5 on his spine.
Not sure what or why, but people are dropping like flies lately. January has contained a ton of serious SUCK for me lately with all of this. Today's news really hit hard. The good news if there is any is that all of the guys are in high spirits and determined to "kick this things Ass".

My entire 2014 was like that. Was glad to see it fade into the history books.

Wish the very best outcome for your fighting friends, and you.

Don, these are some tough dudes. Ron out in Cali has been riding his Ultra everyday to Chemo until yesterday when it started to, as he put it, make his intestines a bit sloppy. It just pains me to have this many of my close friends all come down with this sort of malady all at once. They're going to beat this stuff, I just know it. They are some tough, hard as nails guys.

That's tough news to take, Darryl. They will need you to stay in touch and keep your spirits up so you can encourage them in their fight. Stay strong, brother!

Many thanks to all of you. Sometimes it's comforting just to have friends who you know genuinely care when everything seems to come crashing down around you.
