CAGEPOTATO PSA: HOLY CRAP, ALF BEAT CANCER YOU GUYS


(Lookin’ good, Laura! Nice to see the hair finally coming back!)

CagePotato HQ received some incredible news yesterday from our dear friend Laura “angrylittlefeet” Nicholson — who you’ve supported with your cash and kind words during her treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma this year. Check out the update she sent us (after a celebratory margarita), and show her some love on twitter and Facebook!

Hey there my fellow Taters! Many of you have been with me throughout my fight against cancer so I wanted to share the news with you all…

ALF defeats Hodgkins Lymphoma via KTFO rd 3!

I had a PET scan on Tuesday and just got results back and it was good as it could be. All my nodes are fine now and all internal organs are back to normal — no more swelling is present. Just some scar tissue from the lung surgery but that’s to be expected. Now I just go back in 4 months for a follow up scan and if all is still well they cut me loose except for semi annual checkups.

Many thanks to everybody who supported me during this ordeal!

“Fight for ALF” Update: One F*cking Thing at a Time


(Via Laura’s Facebook page)

Happy 4th of July, Potato Nation! Before you fire up the grill and start tossing around the bang snaps, please read the latest update from our dear friend Laura “angrylittlefeet” Nicholson, who is resting up before her next round of operations and chemo next week. Yeah, it’s a bummer, but that’s life. We’re proud as hell of our girl for hanging tough, under the circumstances. If you haven’t already, please kick in a few bucks to our “Fight for ALF” fundraising drive to help cover Laura’s medical expenses, and send her some love on twitter. Thanks a million, and enjoy the day.

This week’s Alf update brought to you by Hodgkins Lymphoma……. Still NOT recommended as a diet aid.

Hi Taters! Alf here. Finally have a day between hospital visits to sit down and relax. And eat. At my last visit my Doc said I had lost entirely too much weight (I blame hospital food and boredom) and my job is to put some back on by any means necessary. Fast. Next operation is Monday, next chemo is Tuesday. He even went so far as to say he wants me eating cake and ice cream. Wait — Really? So now I have kind of a dr’s rx for cake & ice cream. Sweet! Now I just need my backwards-ass state to get on the medical weed bandwagon…..

Monday’s procedure is to have my chemo port installed. Somehow I don’t think a body was ever meant to have anything “installed” but what the hell do I know? Also they will remove this god-forsaken PICC line that has been driving my nuts and dangling from my arm since forever it seems. Oh I do hope I won’t need to be awake for all this festivity but I probably will. They seem to be pretty stingy with the sleepy time drugs.

They tell me that the second chemo is when the hair starts to go if it’s going to. Shit. shitshitshitshitfuckshitshit. Really, really bad girl-trauma on the horizon.

That’s it at this point. Just looking to get through next week and then go from there. One fucking thing at a time.

Hope you all have a great 4th of July. Have a beer for me and try not to blow off any goddam limbs or digits.

Alf
