    Martin David Crowe @MDCroweMentor

    After a brilliant year of self discovery and recovery I have more work to do. My friend & tough taskmaster Lymphoma is back to teach me.

    Elegantly put by the ATG batsman.
    I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER

    Not good news - sincerely hope he shrugs it off again

    Slightly perplexed by the belief that touring the sub-continent was the cause, albeit indirectly - I wonder whether there is any scientific basis for that

    I think that bit of the article is phrased rather badly. He believes that the salmonella poisoning and glandular fever weakened his immune system (which does make him more susceptible to Lymphoma). The Sub-Continent is just where he happened to be at the time.
    Having said that there did used to be much paranoia about certain parts of the World. Geoff Boycott for example didn't tour India in the early 70's because he believed not having a spleen made him more likely to suffer ill-health in that part of the World.

    Get well soon
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Would hate the mental side of getting cancer as much as the physical side of it.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    10 months ago, my 90 yo Dad was diagnosed with colon cancer on a Thursday and operated upon on the Monday

    Despite the fact that he is not a normal guy of his age, the specialist later said that they would never have opened him up if they knew what was inside

    I speak to him everyday and everyday he tells me that he will beat it

    Yesterday the docs gave him the all clear, so I asked "what now?"

    "I'll beat the cancer in the liver and prostate as well"

    He is the strongest person I know but it will wear anybody down and I'm just glad that he is 91 not younger

    That's an incredible story thanks for sharing that Social.

    Like I said you need determination to beat the cancer to put up with the treatment rather than just curling up in a ball and giving up. Also there is a belief that if you maintain a positive outlook you have a better chance of beating it. So that also must test you on down days e.g. "I need to pick myself up here".

    My ex wife has cancer - she is still my friend so I sent her some good will messages. It was really difficult as she was really picky over the words that I used as she wants to control her mental state. After a while each email I sent to her was a master piece that took a long time to construct.

    My sympathies mate

    Everyone is different

    He is aware of his mortality so I can say whatever I want/feel

    Dad is driven by the fact Mum isn't well (she's 85) and should probably be in a home but he will never let that happen whilst he is breathing

    Horrible disease and side-effects from the treatment (e.g. chemo effects the nerve endings and there are days when he cant put his feet on the floor)
