Some of you may know some of this information. Well here goes with the news as a I can best describe it.
In April of 2010 I was told by my doctors at the VA that I had a form of cancer that is called CLL (Chronic Lymphocyte Leukemia) now that is the best kind of cancer of the blood that you can have if you are going to have cancer of the blood. People live a long time with this condition. But then again there is always a but, it can bring on other types of cancer and lowers your immune system. So I have been dealing with that for the last couple of years and have been only having to have blood tests every 6 months. I was declared 100% total and permanent disabled by the Department of Veterans Affairs. This is all from the contact that I had with Agent Orange while in the Saigon river in 1965.
Well on August 2012 I was put in the hospital with pneumonia I was in there for a week. While in there and they did a CAT scan and chest x-rays they found a spot on my lung suspected to be lung cancer. After several more test and scans and a biopsy of my lung they confirmed that it is lung cancer. Of course dealing with the VA Health care system and how thorough they are they found some other suspect areas. Which if that is the case it has spread and that is not good news. The Oncologist that I am dealing with is just great and said that he was not counting me out yet we still have to find out if the other areas are the same cancer as in the lungs. So it will be more test and biopsies coming very soon. There will be radiation and chemo in my future. I know this is not stuff that anybody wants to hear but what it is, is what it is. I could not let my friends not know what the heck is going on.
As of right now I am feeling fine and not having pain or losing any weight or anything like that, just have a shortness of breath at times.
Vi is taking this all in stride of course she is not happy with the news but we both realize what is going on and we are living life one day at a time. We have discussed things and what will happen in the future. Open dialog and talk is what we are trying to do. Got to love that girl of mine she is great.
I did not do this to depress or make my friends worry about me and Vi but just to let you know what is happening.
Thanks everybody for being our fiends.

I met George at the Spokane RV show in Jan 07. I was preparing to purchase a truck camper and he was an old pro. I learned so much from him. And yes, I purchased a Snow River camper, which he recommended. Have had 0 regrets since. He came over and helped me blow it out and add anti-freeze the first winter. Had an electrical problem, which he skillfully fixed. I didn't like leaving my camper on happijacks when off truck, so he built me a pair of sturdy and stout A-frames to set it on. His key holder, pen and magazine racks grace my camper. He shared his favorite haunts around his hometown of Ione WA with me, where I later enjoyed some wonderful camping. We discussed, looked forward to and attended each annual RV show. Had a wonderful time with him, and many others, at this years Glacier Park TC rendezvous. We spoke of future trips and good times in our campers yet to come.......
All who knew George loved him, his wonderful sense of humor, helpful ways and genuineness. George will be riding copilot whenever I head out in my camper. My, how I will miss him. However, I will keep his gentle spirit close and keep his memory alive and near.
I'm still trying to get my head around this.....as old sailors we shared greetings each Veterans Day, reminiscing about the old days. I sure missed that visit today.
All who knew George loved him, his wonderful sense of humor, helpful ways and genuineness. George will be riding copilot whenever I head out in my camper. I will keep his gentle spirit and memories of him near and dear.
RIP George! You had a positive influence and impact on so many. My life has been enriched and enhanced by knowing you my friend.
My heart goes out to Vi and family. I look forward to seeing them soon. Sending heartfelt condolences and best wishes to them. Wishing you peace in this time of sorrow.

He is one of the first to post a welcome when a new person or member gets on this forum.
and I'll remember one of the most fair moderators we had.
A very easy person to talk to, I had hours with him at the big rally in 07, when I was a new member.

Over the years he has offered assistance through emails, and shared Christmas greetings and just general chat, and I will miss him.
I'd like to think he is still camping, and anywhere he wants to be too. Condolences to the Chambers family, he was a truly great all round guy.
