Another Waiting Game…

I went to Calgary on Friday morning to have my “Final” hearing with the WCB… this time a Medical Panel… Thankfully I wasn’t alone at this hearing.  I had a lawyer and the Fire Chief with me… I think we did a pretty good job of making our case.  My lawyer made some excellent points and I too got my say… at least they seemed to understand what we were saying… and accepted the information without any arguments.  Now it’s just a waiting game to see if we were able to convince them that my prostate cancer was PROBABLY caused by my being a fire fighter… At age 46, without the risk factors normally associated with prostate cancer, I am sure that my job had a large part in my cancer.  I hope they see it that way too!!

Now I just have to wait for their decision… but how long… weeks… or months???

Until next time…
