Scottsdale Arizona --June 26, 2010 -- Mic is a former member of Newsvine; he quit a couple of months ago. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer about six months ago. He received radiation treatments. He said that he actually enjoyed the radiation treatments, because it got him out of the house. He would like to find a way to get out of the house more now, now that his radiation treatments have ended. He can get a round trip ride to WalMart for $4. He goes to WalMart about once a week to buy groceries.
He spends a lot of time on the computer, which in my opinion is not good. He has leg ulcers, and he told me that they were not as bad, when he was going out often. I think he would agree.
He seemed extremely grateful for the telephone call. He didn't answer until the phone rang seven times. He uses a walker because he says that he falls frequently. He told me that the phone rang another time, and that he couldn't get to the phone in time. I could sense that he was devastated. He talked and talked and talked. I didn't keep track of the time. So, if you call, let the phone ring at least ten times to give Mic time to get to the phone.
Hey buddy, do you have a dime? Do you remember that? In this case; Hey buddy do you have a free phone call?
I would encourage anyone to call Mic. I'll be surprised, if you regret it. Mic is a very likable person, and I think he would enjoy hearing from you. Also, it gets him out from under the computer, which is harming his leg condition in my opinion.
My daughter works for a Presbyterian church, I have met and talked to the Pastor there; in fact I had dinner with him at my grandson's graduation celebration. I will send a link to this article to my daughter. The church does a lot of humanitarian work. Perhaps they will see fit to direct some aid to Mic. I'm willing to assist in obtaining any other type of aid for him. Catholic organizations come to mind. Also, there may be other businesses or organizations that would be willing to lend a hand to Mic.
Mic can be called at 903 887 0990. Mic can be contacted by email at Newsvine. His domain name is Vulgivagus Poeta.
