He has advanced lung cancer and is in a hospital in Palm Springs. Family and friends are with him. I will know more tomorrow but things do not look good.

Sorry to hear that. He's a valuable contributor to the forum. Best wishes to him if you see him.

I'm very sorry to here this. I've known for awhile he was not well but did not know what it was or how serious. My thoughts and prayers are with him.

Thanks for the info. He had said awhile back that something bad was afoot. I know him from when he worked at Bob's BMW like 15 years ago. I was tickled as hell when I started hanging out here a couple of years ago, and figured out who wirewrkr was. Shit! I don't pray a lot, but I'll pray for him.

Oh lordy, what bad news. Prayers and thoughts for Robt and family.

Should we post his name along with the hospital address for... correspondence? Internet/WiFi may be not available in the hospital.

His business email addy is: but he may have a "private" email that we could send to (such as his gmail address). Find out what we can list in public here.

And we can print out this thread for him as it grows.

I was recently wondering why he hadn't posted any ebay funnies...

wirewrkr, stay strong!

This has been on my mind all morning.

How far along is his cancer? If he isn't in the final stages he just might have time to save his own life, even if he is in the final stages this is well worth trying.

I have personally been involved in helping to treat and cure several people with various forms of cancer. The cancers that can be most effectively be treated and cured with cannabis oil are soft tissue cancers, however I have seen marked improvements in health for a bone cancer patient I was working with.

If you know wirewrkr I would ask that you pass this information along to him... it just might save his life! It most definitely will NOT cause further damage or harm.

I have worked closely with Marco Renda the owner of , I was a regular feature writer for his international medical marijuana magazine " TreatingYourself " . I am NOT a physician, I am just someone that knows the TRUTH!

Thoughts and prayers.

When I first heard he was going through some health issues I didnt think much about it. Funny thing is I have thought about it a lot since then and now I know why. RECOVERY.
