Pre-Surgery Update

Thanks to everyone for all the emails and correspondence over the holiday season.  I really appreciate it.  All the paperwork is finished and tomorrow morning I will travel to Birmingham, Alabama to St. Vincent's Hospital for the cancer surgery.  Hopefully, this will be end of it... I mean the end of the cancer not me!

I will have about a month to recover from the surgery then I will begin four to six months of chemo then I should be finished provided I get no surprises.  No bad surprises anyway.  I'll update first here on the blog as soon as I'm able, hopefully, with good news.

Again, thanks to everyone.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Hey everybody!  Just wanted to write a quick blog update to keep everyone up to speed.  I'm very sorry I missed the Bryan & Vinny Christmas Show this year.  Bryan text me earlier in the day asking for a good time to call but I wasn't feeling very well and had to work the next morning so I needed to go to bed early so I had to cancel.  So, even though I couldn't be on the show I wanted to wish everyone a heartfelt Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday seasons!

In case you missed it in the feed (I still don't understand why iTunes seems to not aggregate my shows) please check out the double show I did a few days ago over at  It will be the last show(s) before my cancer surgery on January 8, 2015.

I will post a post surgery update here on this blog as soon as I am able.

Again, thanks from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has donated toward my medical expenses.  Hopefully, this will all wrap up by summer.  After surgery I hope to have a quick recovery then I will go back on chemotherapy for four to six months.  Please also, if you want Stern Sticks please try to order before January 5th so I can get them sent out.

Again, thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart

I want to personally thank everyone who has recently donated money toward my medical expenses.  It has come in very handy during this time.  I don't want to name individuals for fear of leaving someone out but I've tried to personally respond to everyone who donated via the PayPal link at  however I also want to thank all of you who donated privately through Bryan Alvarez at that was very thoughtful of you and I really appreciate that.  Since I can't know who you all were I want to say thank you.  Also, someone sent me an Amazon Gift Card to help with Christmas and I don't know who you are either but thank you from the bottom of my heart.  If any of you donated anonymously I would like a chance to say thank you as well and if you'll drop me an email to I'd like to thank you personally.

I recently got some encouraging news about my cancer surgery which will take place on January 8th, 2015 and I hope it goes well.  The doctor is hopeful he will be able to get all the cancer.  I am, however, now having some nerve damage issues from the extensive radiation which has effected my ability to walk.  I am trying to physical therapy myself through this issue (and yes I continue to work but I'm having to wear knee and ankle braces and wraps but I am no mere mortal man).  This damage may not be reversible but since the alternative is death in less than five years... well... I'll take it and be happy about it.

Again, thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  God bless everyone who has sent me a kind email, donated money, or advice.  Thank you.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I've got some bad news... and some GREAT news

I went to the doctor yesterday and got some great news but first tempered with some bad news.  Let's get the bad news out of the way first.  The doctor told me the cancer was a lot worse than I thought.  In fact, he said it was a very, very ugly tumor and exceptionally large.  While that sounds horrible it actually gets better.  The doctor also said that because it looked so bad from the beginning I was given the most aggressive radiation and chemotherapy right from the start and it appears to have worked wonderfully.

The tumor shrank dramatically which qualifies me for a less radical surgery.  This surgery, if successful, will allow me to return to work, perhaps as early as sometime in February.  The downside is, this surgery is a little more risky, in that the cancer will have to be very closely monitored to make sure it doesn't come back and I still may have to get the "big surgery" later on if this first one isn't successful.

In other words, everybody say their prayers (eating vitamins is optional) that this surgery will be a success.  The date of the surgery is January 8th so please remember me and my family during this time.  I should have at least one (probably more) radio show before then so I'll update with the latest there.

Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the kindness and donations that have been made.  Words can not express my gratitude.- Karl

Too Much Sometimes

Feeling really tired today and it's straight pissing me off. I run out of breath getting in and out of a car. I get exhausted walking to the mailbox. I hate this! The radiation doctor told me that the worst would wear off in a few months. I sure hope so but even after recovery from my surgery I'll have six months of chemo again. I thank God I'm not in any real pain any more so I hate to complain too much.

Tuesday I should get the date for my surgery so please keep me in your prayers. I don't want to fall into depression, which I understand is common with this, but it's so frustrating.

Thanks for all the kind words, emails, and donations. You'll never know how much it means to me.
