My Continued Battle With Cancer

 

As most people who know me will know I have been batteling cancer off and on since I was 28-years old. I thought I was winning this battle when I was told my prostate cancer was gone. I had that battle a year ago durinf the Bangkok 2011 Floods. Then since October of this year I have been pretty sick. I went to Ho Chi Minh City on 13/11/2012 only to find myself in BIG trouble health wise. I was met on the tarmac by an ambulance and actually the Dr. came on the plane to begin treating me. Then I had to cancel my business plans and return home to Thailand ASAP! Note the airline Lufthansa crew were very helpful including the Captain. They have everything documented should anyone require additional proof.

 

I need a minimum of $7,000.00 USD.

 

Actually it isn’t much money as compared to the cost in the U.S. (Also not much money considering this is for my health and I just do not have the funds available). This will allow me to have the surgery very late December or early January 2013. Then I will need to have radiation for 4-5 days a week for about 3-months. I must also have Chemotherapy by injection. This will be done at the same hospital asmy past surgeries. This is a Thai government hospital and is considered one of the best in this region. They are very hi-tech and low payments. http://www.si.mahidol.ac.th/eng/Index.asp

 

The Dr. has already warned me that this is not good

I will be posting updates as often as possible. Thank you for your kind consideration and thoughtfulness. May God Bless you always.

Thailand’s preparations for the Asean Economic Community (AEC), which is set to launch by the end of 2015, medical specialists may need to conduct their licensing exams in English.

 

Consortium of Thai Medical School Secretary-General Arwut Srisukri, who oversees the syllabus of the country’s medical schools, said the move was part of efforts to prepare for competition in the labour market once the AEC goes into effect.

Under the proposal, which has yet to be approved, the written part of the Thai medical licensing exam will be presented in English. The clinical exam would continue to be conducted in Thai.

 

Dr Arwut said the professional body wants to ensure that doctors can measure up to potential foreign competition under the AEC which will usher in a free flow of skilled labour in many professions, including medicine in the region.
