    Some of you may have been wondering why James Hall has not been posting as much as he has in the past! Unfortunately, there is no such thing as the golding years for those of us that have hit the retirement age! The only thing golding about them when you reach the retirement age is its golding for the doctors and all of the money they are going to make off of you.

    James is fighting one hell of a battle for his life and is undergoing chemo and radiation treatment for what they told him was terminal cancer. He has been surrounded by family and friends helping with his care!

    I was surprised to hear that he made a few posts in the last few days when he tried to give you guys something to write about, knowing all too well that some of you get your kicks out of attacking him!

    Maybe James sees a little humor in your attacks and you guys put a smile on his face and gave him a good laugh!

    James is putting up a good fight knowing all too well what terminal cancer means to him. I should know more after today and I hear what his latest operation did for him. The sad part of this whole thing is you are all losing someone that could have helped you to win at craps!

    So, as he told me you guys can have a field day with this information, I was hoping to get to play craps one more time with him if he can make the trip to Vegas, James is one hell of a man and will be missed by me and all of his friends and family!

    His wife has been keeping me informed when he is too weak to talk on the phone, and the last time I talked to him he said that he was going to make the most of the time he has left and was going out on his terms fighting all the way!

    You never know what people are dealing with. All of our best to the Hall family.

    I recently learned that you can starve cancer cells, simply by depriving them of sugar. We have this fabulous liver & the body adapts using ketones for energy; something cancer cells cannot do & abhor. You starve them to death. Doctors don't know. Terminal's not terminal, until it's terminal. Maybe this'll help.

    I wish him all the best in this fight. I did the same...chemo and radiation at the same time....so I know what he’s going thru.

    He’s a cowboy. He will fight it like hell.

    Thoughts and prayers with the family.SR keep us posted.CK is right about natural treatments.Plant based diet but fruits are good but nothing processed. Amazing how your own body can fight if it's immune system at full strength.

    James and I have grossly different opinions about the best way to approach the game of casino craps and the possibility of prevailing at it. In fact the chasm separating our opinions became an obstacle to discussing them almost nine months ago and I put him on Ignore. Nevertheless, his reported situation could not be farther from a desirable resolution of our differences.

    @James Hall: Your ride's here.

    Tell James no one is going to have a field day with this news as he may think. We are all saddened to hear about his situation and wish him all the best in his fight.

    That is news nobody wants to hear. For what it is worth, I have a friend with terminal cancer. One year after hearing he had cancer he got in an accident and lost his leg from above the knee down. This year is eight years since the accident and we just finished a wonderful cross country trip together. Ride that bronco Jimmy!

    The Comeback Kid,

    I also have heard that the complete elimination of SUGAR will result in the elimination of Cancer in the human body!

    James Hall is one of the few that would have the Will Power to undergo such a task.

    I say, go for It James, & Best of Luck...

    We all need you back here & posting again!!

    My condolences, as well, to Mr. Hall & his family. However, I believe FredP made a valid distinction between JH as a poster and JH as a person. I, also, am glad JH is not posting, anymore, but not for this reason.

    I have not posted on this forum for months due to constant road trips and lack of interest. However, I have always enjoyed James Halls posts and in my experience in Nevada and Arizona the cowboys and girls represent the best of the American Spirit. I wish the best for James and his family.

    SR,

    Is there any new/good news for James?

    Just saw a guy on the news yesterday with stage 4 pancreatic cancer who was told 8 yrs ago that he had 6-9 months to live. He claims attitude is everything, and says he still feels very good.

    Keep fighting James.

    I wonder what type of cancer it is.
    Terminal cancer means it can’t be cured or treated. So why the chemo and radiation? Extending his life?
