I have a very rare cancer

After I had the surgery I blogged about last month I learned the mass was cancer. I have a very rare form of skin cancer called DERMATOFIBROSARCOMA PROTUBERANS. I have since had a second surgery this month and need a third one called Mohs micrographic surgery next month. This surgery is named for the doctor who created it many years ago. There is a silver lining,however, in that this cancer only metastasizes in 1%-5% of cases. I wanted to share this with all of my readers to get the word about this rare disfiguring cancer. Mine is in my left forearm,which is pain in the bum since I'm left handed.  This is not my first battle with cancer either. I Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 1999. I had several operations,biopsies etc. and 6 months of chemo. I will beat this just as I beat that with my lord and savior Jesus Christ by my side.  I will see my oncologist on September 14th and will blog again about this after that. But, rest assured that I will still be blogging missing kids no matter what. These kids are MY kids since I have none of my own.

White House Boys child abuse case

At the Florida Industrial School For Boys in Marinna,FL atrocities took place from at least the 1940's through the 1960's which until recently were kept hidden inside the victims.  One victim started a website and support system  for these boys now men who were beaten beyond my comprehension. Thanks to this brave man Roger Dean Kiser author of The White House Boys: An American Tragedy I am able to tell you their story. Thank you Mr.Kiser and all the brave White House Boys for allowing this blog to be written.
                Many of these boys were not sent to the reform school for any crime,they simply weren't wanted or were orphans. They were taken to a building at the school behind the mess hall called the White House  and were told to lay on a filthy mattress on a bed frame with springs. They then had to hold onto the metal bed frame and bite the nasty pillow while they were beat with a leather strap that had a metal strip inside for reinforcement. The wounds were horre…
