Mark Wessling, aka manowar, a few weeks ago developed a sore throat, chest congestion and fatigue that seemed unusually resistant. Upon seeing the doctor, the blood test was quick and decisive: Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Mark was immediately hospitalized and his full-on chemotherapy begins tomorrow, as well as a bone marrow transplant planned shortly thereafter (now accomplished with stem cells grown from a matched sibling blood sample!). His hospitalization is estimated at one month.
I’ve been communicating with Mark for the last 5 years and he is the biggest cheerleader for flexspoons.
Here he is riding a flexspoon he built. Get better Mark. We haven’t surfed together yet.
