I’ve never met Brian D. Buck, never talked to him, don’t know him. I did work with and am friends with his brother, and via that route learned about his long and hard struggle with cancer. I follow his blog and aggregate it, and by the nature of his life there can be long stretches with no posts. That’s why it was especially good to see this note that his new chemo treatments seem to be working and he isn’t experiencing as negative side effects as on previous treatments. Just because I don’t know him doesn’t mean I’m not pulling for him. Here’s hoping he comes through this phase OK.
