Curtis Cook Improving

From: Curtis Cook Thanks!!!
What can I say? I am surprised and even joyed in receiving the M&M's and now the card. Yes it was good to see most everyone at the reunion. The white hair is almost gone and being replace with the skin, I expect what is left will fall out in the next couple of weeks. But, it is OK. It could come back Black or as mother said when I was born it was Blonde and curly. It does not matter at this point, what matters is the Doctor told me monday that I am responding to the treatment and I have finished my second treatment and my next one will be Oct. 8th. I am doing great and you don't know how bad you felt until you feel good.Curtis ... Reply -- This is good news! Give it the FULL COURT PRESS.. whatever that is..I have no clue.. I was just the photographer...HA!! .. Vic
