If you’re the praying sort, send prayers. If you’re the non-praying sort, send, I don’t know, good vibes. Derek got some really crappy news, and he and his family could use your support:
To boil it down: my cancer has grown and spread. My goals now are to see the Winter Olympics come to Vancouver in 2010, and beyond that to renew my driver’s license when it expires again in five years. But while my medical team and I will do everything to try to make that happen, there is a significant chance I might not live that long, that I might be dead before five years are up.
Be strong, dude.
