MG TD TF 1500 - Best wishes to Dave DuBois

Hi Dave,

I have been the recipient of your wisdom on all things related to MG T Series cars for quite some time now. I hope you'll forgive me for starting this thread, but I think that several of us will want to express our gratitude to you, and send our thoughts and prayers as you go through the chemo process.

Here’s wishing you and your wife all the best in what lies ahead for you.

Dave, you've joined an exclusive club, of which I am also a member. May your god be with you, and please let us know when you come out of the sausage machine. Remember, the chemo is merely a means to an end, and then you resume normal life ... with an improved perspective! Yours, John.

Dave, not sure if you saw my post on the other thread so I'll repeat it here. I too am a member of the Lymphoma club. It started almost 2 years ago. After Chemo, Retuxan immunatherapy and radiation I'm cancer free as we speak. Yesterday I drove my TD on a 100+ mile fall color drive through the high Rockies. Hang in there and you can get back on the road! Trust me. That's me on the right in the photo below. Wave back and I'll feel good.

There isn't likely, any medical system in the world, better than the American system. We outsiders can rant and rave about the fact that you don't have universal medicare, but say what you want, most Americans demand the best available treatment ... and get it, irrespective of their station in life.

Most diagnosis, procedures, treatments, and care, are a reflection of an outstanding system of medical training.

I'm hopeful Dave, that you will benefit from such a wonderful system. Mix in a bit of luck, love from your family and friends, and a dose of spiritual 'engagement'. Even if you don't believe, you have nothing to lose.

Give it your best shot Dave, and I expect we'll see you back at full speed in a few months.

Dave, last March I went to my doctor complaining about a painful hip. After many tests including taking samples of my lower hip bone, I was diagnosed with a sarcoma in my left ischium (the bone you sit on). Six weeks of chemo and radiation followed by surgical removal of the cancerous ischium and things are looking up. Last week I took my first drive in the TD and found (1) the lack of an attachment point for my left hamstring didn’t impede my ability to operate the clutch and (2) the fairly soft seats in my TD allowed me about an hour of driving before having to stop and walk around. I’ve still got a ways to go before “full” recovery but every day is better than the day before.

All this is to say the “You can win!!” Keep with it and know that we are all pulling for you.
