Say your say when the time is near.

Posted by ewan on Monday, October 29, 2012,

Today, it might be my last birthday I spend with my father. I am hoping that the cancer will not take him out of our midst before the drive start in 2014, but the prognosis is a dire one.

I want to spend as much time with him as possible but it is not always possible. There is so much that we never had the chance to discuss, but due to the fact that I am aware that he is on his way, it actually gives us the opportunity to talk things out that have bothered us both for years that we avoid...

Cancer at 22

Posted by ewan on Tuesday, October 23, 2012,
Twenty-two years old. I could run a 5K in 21 minutes, sometimes without breaking a sweat. My bench press approached 300 pounds, as the ladies loved the broad chest and thick shoulders. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in Political Science and History. I was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force, on my way to flying on the E-3 Sentry. It all came so easily. Nothing could stop me.

This past week up to this morning has been an interesting one. Two small milestones reached. Firstly 50 likes on the Face Book page.

“I have given you the seed for the harvest, and you have prepared the fields and sown the seeds. Now it is up to Me to show you that I will not give you work to do invaine. I will bring you rain and sunshine to make the seeds grow and bear fruit so that you can eat and share your harvest with all that is in need. You will still need to weed the fields to ensure that the weeds do not overwhelm the harvest. Believe in Me for I am the Lord your God that gave you the means to carry on. I wil...

The weed in our bodies.

Posted by ewan on Thursday, October 4, 2012,

Cancer is like a weed, if you catch it early and treat it, you can beat it. If allowed to seed, eventually the whole field would be covered with the weed. Cancer, if not treated in the early stages and treated, it would overrun your body and destroy any chances of eradicating it from your body. The main message of the pole2poleandback drive is to encourage the early detection of any possible cancers in the body.

Cancer stays localized in one place till enough of the one organ is infected,...

About Me


I am the organizer of the Pole2poleandback drive for the awareness of cancer and to raise funds for two of our indispensable NGO's that rely almost solely on donations. The reason for the drive is my mission to make more aware of cancer and that early detection can lead to effective treatment.
