My brother in law had it, and he under went 3 treatments, and it took care of it. John must have a more advanced, or aggressive type. Sure hope they caught it in time.

Just did some research... fascinating stuff.  85% is the chance of the cancer returning if you do nothing else.  If you get 6 follow-up BCG treatments (a liquid placed in your bladder via a catheter that promotes your body to heal itself), one treatment per week, the survival rate is 95.4% over 5 years.   I am sure John's doctors have discussed this immunotherapy with him if his cancer was not aggressive or invading the bladder walls.  John's a better golfer than a doctor.  Wishing you the best, John.

Bacillus Calmette–Guerin (BCG) treatment can help prevent cancer from returning following surgery for early-stage bladder cancer...

This is something we all can agree.   Cancer sucks.   Here's hoping he's able to fight it successfully.  

Cancer sucks for sure. Get well Mr Daly.

    • Day 122.  More carpet putting;  larger room, a bit more time, different spot, same ruler.  I am beginning to think bead is not the problem with my putting. 
    • Great idea @cipher, yep I'm definitely interested.
    • Day 49 - More swings working on my new setup. 
    • Hello everyone. The golf gods have pulled me back in, and I’m hoping it will stick this time. Just scheduled my first lesson in over a decade, so maybe some financial investment will help keep me in the game. Here are a couple of swings from tonight. Now that I’m back, still working on getting more depth in the backswing.    9i DTL: 60-70 yard LW DTL: Plan is to get a couple of lessons and then a fitting. These clubs are too short and 17 years old at this point. The instructor fits Mizuno and Ping, and the new Hot Metals Pros look great. The new Ben Hogan’s are also quite attractive, but I won’t have a fitting option. 
    • As someone who plays roughly 6 month of the year with rain gear I feel qualified to say, most, if not all rain gear is an enormous struggle to fit.    Let’s start with pants. They are ALWAYS too long with a waist that is not matching, usually too small. Foot-Joys pants are lousy elastic in the waist and I have to wear a clip at the bottom to avoid dragging my pants all over the golf course. Nike has the best in my opinion. Sizing is easier and not ridiculously long length.    Jackets rarely offer much “give”. Most are hard to swing in. I have purchased the $250 top of the line, same problem. I recommend undersizing as many of the good brands will do a fair amount of stretching. Foot-Joy when undersized is good, also I like Nike undersized also. Nike has quite a bit of give and is the best in my opinion.  I also have an Under Armour that gives nicely too.    I don’t like pullovers but that is probably personal preference. Hard to get on and off easily. Don’t get me started on zippers. Foot-Joy has nice zippers, everyone skimps there and it is the first place the jacket begins to break down.
