hi all. i was just reading about a toronto doctor, Dr. Jeff Sherkey, who died of a brain tumor. He had had CFS for over a decade. Nancy Kaiser was also in a coma before her death. I understand brain tumors are more likely for CFS patients. I often wonder...why do some of us live for decades with the disease while some get cancer and die so early? I read about one man who died of lymphoma just 4 years after contracting CFS (EBV?) from his daughter. It is all so sad and worrying...it makes me so depressed. I feel like I have no control over my health now. It's just a fluke that I am still around.
