Burner with Cancer in need of Karma

Burner with Cancer in need of Karma

Postby Lughnasa » Fri Mar 22, 2013 8:33 pm

Hello Burners. My playa name is Lughnasa. I'm a veteran Burner and I'm in need of some help.

I've been living with colon cancer for almost three years now. I'm in chemo, but relying mostly on holistic medicine to beat it. I was almost sidelined last Burn because of this but made it to the Burn in 2012 and intend to make it to Cargo Cult as well. I'm just not sure if it's going to happen.

I got my tickets this year, but I'm feeling pretty down lately. The treatments are rough and seemingly unending. All the cliche stuff you see in movies and on television about cancer? Yeah, I'm going through it now. I'm not complaining. In life all our problems are relative and mine are no worse than anyone's.

What I'm asking of anyone who happens to read this is to send me some positive, healing karma. Nothing more. My heart is heavy when I think I won't make it to the Burn this year. I just want to hear the words, "Welcome home," when I arrive. It's one of the few times I've felt cradled by a community in this world and I don't want to miss it.

So if you are reading this, please send some energy my way ... and pass this message along to anyone who would do the same. I am totally self-reliant on the playa, but I just need some help right now in the default world.

Thanks in advance.

Lugh.

Sending you good vibrations and a healthy dose of juju. Keep your faith and spirit strong. (((lugh)))

Glad to hear you finally made it to the event last year. Hopefully the cancer hasn't returned (you mentioned being cancer-free last year). Welcome back and good luck!

Yeah, the cancer returned. Boo. Still fighting the good fight, though.

Living in NC now.

Looking forward making the trek back home.

Sending healing to you. I had cancer (two kinds!) in 2004. Finished radiation on a Friday, got in a car to go to TTITD on Sunday. You can do this, hang in there. Much love.

hi Lugh,
how goes the battle? are your travel plans coming together?
thinking of home and sending you a dusty hug ~~

The day will come when, after harnessing the ether, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.

I am going to go out in a few minutes in the park across the street from my office and send a kite high into the sky just for you.

Be well, sweetheart!
