    Hey I'm not sure how many people check these forums still but I just wanted to make an announcement in case I just disappear and anyone wonders what happened to me.

    So back on March 28th I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, unfortunately they were unable to resect the tumor due to it being wrapped around 3 blood vessels. So I went on chemotherapy, over the course of 10 weeks I had 4 rounds in which I was infused with 3 different chemotherapies, oxiliplantin, ironotecan and 5FU. After these rounds, I had a CT scan, which was actually last Thursday June 21st, on Friday I was informed from my doctor that the chemo was ineffective and the tumor grew and spread to my liver with 2 more smallish tumors being visible.

    I am now joining an immunotherapy trial (which isn't FDA approved yet), and will be focusing more on diet (eating only foods that are known to have anti-cancer properties and avoiding all foods that have things like refined sugar in them which actually feed tumors) to try to stop the growth and spread of these tumors.

    I'm currently being treated at Stanford, which is very good at cancer research and care and while this is pretty scary I still have hope.

    If I don't ever post again, you know why.

    I know most everyone is a long time gone but I wanted to at least leave a record of what happened to me in case anyone ever wonders while browsing this years from now.

    I'm at https://www.facebook.com/dan.borges.14 if any of you want to creep on me or whatever.

    In case things take a turn for the worse, goodbye and it was a pleasure discussing games and hardware with all of you.
