Sad News

I wanted to cross post this from Radarsite and ask any Christians that arrive here to say a short prayer for my friend Roger Gardner who runs that blog.

Roger has been a great help to me with my posts and has placed many of my articles regarding my personal case and what is happening in Britain posted on a number of international sites which include Reuters, Jewish blog network, Real Clear Politics and Stop the UCLA, thus being able to reach a much wider audience, giving others from around the world an on the ground perspective of life in 21st Century Britain.

Roger has just been diagnosed with Leukemia so I would ask that you say a short prayer for him, that the Almighty will heal him or prolong his life.

We all stare down the tunnel of death it is just some are more conscious of it than others

1 John 5:14 - 15 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

Dear loyal Radarsite readers --
This is a strange message for me to be writing. But it must be done. But how? What can I say? I think I'll just say it up front. Two days ago I got diagnosed with acute leukemia. It is considered "lethal". I have been told that it could come to an end in as short a time as 2 weeks. I have been allowed to come home for one night before I go into the hospital tomorrow for chemo. If I survive the first week, things could get better, if I survive four weeks thing could really get better. However, as of now the first prognosis does seem the most likely. I think we all wonder how we might react to news like this. At this point I can tell you that I am in a good mood, and I have accepted it and I have nothing but gratitude that I have been allowed to live this long, and to have found such a fulfilling mission this late in life.

I am so grateful to have made so many good friends and to have found so many worthy patriots who love this great country of ours as much as I do, not despite what we have done but because of what we have done.

This may be my last article and of course I would like it to be my best. I would like to fill it with everything I have learned or felt. I would like to say something really profound and meaningful, but I just can't. I'm getting too tired right now to go much further.

I can only say thank you for all I have learned from you and for your steadfast loyalty. My fondest hope of course would be that I would come back home all cured and find this article to be an embarrassment to me. lol But of course that's not up to me.

Please, all of you, all of you who are my fellow warriors, all of you who have commented here, and all of you who have been quiet readers, keep up the good fight, and I hope that you have enjoyed me as much as I have enjoyed you.

With great respect,
Roger W. Gardner

My thoughts and prayers are with your friend Roger and with you as well, Lionheart.

My best friend received a similar leukemia diagnosis three years ago and she is still fighting it. She's been plenty sick, but she's also been able to do a lot of good living in those three years. I pray that your friend will tolerate his first round of chemo like a champ and will feel well enough to start blogging soon.


P.S. I really came over to see if you had heard about Afghanistan's Operation Lionheart.. Thought you should!

I'll pray for you in Montana Roger. The death-end-of-life is no fun. I hope that you are saved so I can find you in Heaven if you do have to leave Earth.
