Dear Marc,

All sympathy and good wishes from me too. I hope the hospitals and health care 
are not too overwhelmed, so that you can receive all the attention and care 
you need.

And Ruth, any time you want to talk, please just let me know. I finally bought 
a new laptop that's better for video chats. I'm here.

Thinking of you both,

Dear friends and associates on Netbehaviour,

Last Wednesday I was diagnosed with stage 2 cancer in the form of lesions 
around the neck, ear and throat - on the right side of my head. The hospital 
crew dealing with my cancer say it's curable but they need to begin the 
process immediately. It will involve an intense three months. They will use 
radiotherapy and chemotherapy on me. It's going to be really rough, already 
horrible things have happened. It will take about three weeks to set it all 
up, and then visiting the hospital every day for six weeks with radiotherapy 
and chemotherapy, ugh!
I am officially on sick leave for the next three months regarding Furtherfield 
matters, but I will pop up (hopefully) every now and then with certain 
projects that are underway - especially the new book which is out very soon, 
called 'Frankenstein Reanimated: Art & Life in the 21st Century. Edited by 
Marc Garrett and Yiannis Colakides', to be published on Torque.
Rather than telling everyone individually, it felt easier to mention it here. 
A warm thanks for the love already that people have expressed in my direction.

Apologies if I do not respond to questions - I'm sure you'll appreciate that 
I'll likely be too unwell to interact.
Wishing you well.
