Update on Tom's fight with Lukemia

By Tom Feeley

March 17, 2023: Information Clearing House -- I wanted to keep the ICH community informed on my health issues, which led to a lack off updates on our website and newsletter for some time. A quick recap for those  of you who may not be aware of what happened to present us with these difficulties.

In September 2021 I was diagnosed with Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and admitted to hospital for chemotherapy and other treatments to see if it  was possible to get the AML into remission. After 3 months in hospital, tests showed that treatment was successful and the AML was no longer active.

On January first 2022, I was discharged from hospital and told that I should have a bone marrow transplant (BMT), which should be done as soon as possible and if successful would provide me with the possibility of the remission lasting 5 to 10 years of life.

Because of a mistake  made by Medicare I would not be able to have the transplant until June first 2022 as it would require constant outpatient visits, for which I did not have medical coverage.

In April 2022 my son came to San Diego and brought me to his home in Texas where I am now located. How does one express gratitude to those who supported my recovery and played such an important role in financing treatments while I waited for the transplant? There are no words that can express my thanks and respect to those of you who were able to help and to all those who have supported my work for the last 22 years. I have no doubt that I would not be alive without your assistance.

While the the transplant, chemotherapy and radiation treatments were difficult, the do not compare to the effort required to have my body regain its strength. I am assured by my doctors and specialists that I should be able to life a fairly normal life within a 6 to 9 months.

I am getting healthier every  day and the doctors say I can return to work 3 for days a week. There only a few things in life that I enjoy more than  my work on ICH.

This AML experience has brought humility and gratitude for every moment of  life, I have met a lot of people  over the years who have shared their insights, experiences and knowledge with me, that  have enabled me to provide opinion and news, which are not normally available in main stream media.

I think now, more than ever there is a need to further inform others about how corrupt our governments have been (Democrat and Republican). Let us stop electing  people who act only to ensure their own wellbeing. Vote for people who practice principles before profits, honesty, respect and service to others.

During the last number of months many of those who were contributing on a monthly basis cancelled there contributions (Who can blame them?) For those who wish to support our efforts please click here. It only remains to sincerely thank you for your help.

Peace and Joy
