I have continued over the last two years to have quarterly checkups on my stage 4 prostate cancer. The treatment (hormone injections every 3 months plus Xtandi medication daily) has managed to slow the spread of the cancer.
I am just so pleased that we have now been taken over by rich and ambitious owners and Eddie Howe is now the head coach.
It is as it is.
My cancer was first diagnosed in April, 2011 and it became stage four in late December, 2016
That's when it spread through the bones to several areas of the body.
My treatment has also included radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
I remain in awe of the kind and effective treatment I have received from the Doctors and Nurses.
While stage four prostate cancer is terminal, I hope to be around for a while yet.
Let's also hope Newcastle can shock everybody this coming season with maybe even a top six finish!
