No Boofest for Me

Post by taz3 » Mon Jul 17, 2017 1:34 pm

I was able to attend the later part of one a few years ago and my wife and I had a great time meeting the members who were there. As some know I'm involved in racing and it takes up my weekends through the summer, so this year I made arrangements to be free for Boofest.
In December I was having a bump on my nose looked at and got passed from doctor to doctor, well I finally found one to work on me in June. The doctor suggested I have a biopsy done first, just incase and to be safe. Well I'm glad he did, as I came to learn it is cancer, I had surgery last week to remove it, which went well. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend Boofest this year for obvious reasons and still need to go back for my follow up. It is a benign tumor and was caught fairly early, so it's not that bad and I'm thankful.

Have one for me and enjoy the festivities!!

Woosh! Bit of a scare there alright! :shock:
Hope you see a complete & swift recovery!!

As for BooFest, as soon as I saw the rules posted regarding no booze, and no guns, I simply knew I wouldn't be makin' it... :lol:

























In reality, what with staring down yet another eyeball surgery, and the shindig being all the way across the entire country, simply ain't in the cards. Hoping some year... :wink:

Cheers,
Nog

....scary for sure....have that "thang" taken cared of and healed....just have one query, was it benign or cancerous?....you first mentioned cancerous, and later benign; either way it is scary...

It is a form of skin cancer, that is dealt with by surgery and or radiation, but is not known to be fatal, but is aggressive. Within 6 months it was the size on a nickel around and a large bump under the skin.

Thank you for all the well wishes folks!
