Kel On Wheels....

Through this blog I have found a support group of sorts, many of whom either have CBGD or know someone who has it. This illness (syndrome, disease, pain in the ass) does not limit its effects to the victim (patient, sufferer, babe in the woods). Many people are touched in many different ways and respond in equally different ways. Some go the route of denial. Choosing to ignore the progression of the handicaps. Others become worried caregivers. Trying to do too much at the expense of their own well-being. Then there people like the friends and relatives of Kel.

Kel's wife, Karla, stumbled upon my blog while looking for answers about the issues Kel and I share. She has been a regular reader and commenter and recently told me about a The Kel On Wheels benefit bike ride. Love of cycling is another thing Kel and I share and if I could I would be there on July 17. But alas, I can't, but some of you could. If you can't make the ride how about Sponsoring Karla.

This is a rare malady and therefore doesn't draw the big research dollars that are needed to help or even cure us. Every little bit helps. Thanks!


Coming soon, Springtime! (version 2010)


  1. Hey there, I just got your comment on my 60's post. My first time here, what an interesting way of handling your predicament. I bet you're helping more people than you know with this blog.
    Thank you for taking the time to visit me.
    I hope the benefit ride is a big success. Hugs. (that's right, I said hugs. geez)

  2. again, wow Bob, this is extremely nice of you to put this site on your blog. As you know i do check your blog regularly as I really enjoy reading your verbage. I have told my daughter who turns 28 monday of you and the connection we have, with CBD the common denominator. She is impressed with you as I am. You will have a few more blog followers i think from WI. We are back home in WI now, and so glad to sleep in our own bed. You take care friend, and know you are kept in my prayers. Karla

  3. Diane,
    I'll be lurking (not stalking) around your blog from time to time. Welcome and thanks.

    You're very welcome.

    Happy St. P.....snort.....just kidding. You don't need a day.

  4. Just lost my mom to CBGD. I have been reading your post for sometime now and have not been able to write anything. I want you to know that I will be thinking of you and your family everyday and pray for some answers. K

  5. K,
    I'm truly sorry that CBGD has found its way into your world. As tough as it can be some days, I would rather have it myself than witness a loved one go through it. Thanks for your kind words.
