Was a School bus mechanic for 17 years for Midland I.S.D. Retired and moved to Princeton TX. to help Daughter with our first Grandaughter. Now have 2 Grandaughters. Second Daughter moved to this area when I was found to have Terminal Liver Cancer. Currently taking 2 $100.00 a pill pills a day that are Chemo to try to increase the time I have left. Dr. letter sent December 2014 listed the Cancer - "stage 4 average median survival one year or less." I hope to be very late for my funeral. V.A. will not admit it but I believe it was caused by Agent Orange in Vietnam. Currently rated 100% disabled. VA says will watch for 2 months more and if growth does not slow will terminate providing Rx. When I asked what is the next treatment and I was told VA has nothing else planned. Will not pay for treatment outside of VA. Bottom line, "Just Die so we can stop paying you".
