Jesus, when I read "Let's remember Jorge" my heart started to beat rapidly. Please choose your words more carefully.
Jorge, I'm retired through a disability as a Radiologic Technologist and Radiation Therapist and my heart goes out to you. I studied radiation therapy in a large teaching university and I saw more hope than ever expected to. After I received a degree in Photography and Graphic design and attended Art
Center College of Design then went to Brooks Institute I gave it all up and went into the medical field. My original photogrpahy teacher said we would never be great photogrpahers until we understood the human condition. I thought gee I am a combat veteran what more do I need to know. It nagged me all through photo schools and when done I went to work in a big city hospital and after twenty years of patient care I had, I believe became a Humanist. The teacher was right, so I found out. Time after time I saw patients who through the most adverse conditions possible walk out of the hospital. It's hard to put in words, it's an experiential thing. You probably have that insight only gained through adversity that so many will never know. Try to keep positive thoughts and we will too.
Hey Jorge, stay strong, we need you.
When I was 18 my mother did her first battle, she won that, and won a few more since then. I'm 39 now and she is out everyday taking photographs with her little Nikon and going strong.
No, this isn't a Nikon recomendation thread its a stay strong thread Jorge. You can do it.
Jorge, get plenty of rest/sleep and eat well - the radiation therapy wears you down. Check out nutrition information at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Patrick Quillin designed their dietery program. Good Health!
Btw, would love to see a book of your platinum prints, such as on the Colonial architecture of San Miguel de Allende.

It wasn't until Jorge took the time and patience to talk me through his brush development technique that I could use the more finicky films like Efke pl100. My first attempts at shuffling were disastrous. Now I use the technique for all my processing and have never had a scratch. Jorge, thank you my friend. You have given many of us more than we can ever repay you. And my hope and prayers are with you for a speedy recovery. Robert
