(UPDATED: Oct. 26, 2014) Cancer update and thanks

Updated October 26, 2014.

I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for all the donations and purchases made this month toward my cancer medical expenses.  Later this week I will be scheduling my meeting with the surgeon and determining if and when I will have the surgery.  Because of the tremendous outpouring of support I have again pulled the donation link as I now have enough money to cover my trips to the doctor.

Unfortunately, I don't have a decision to make between something good and something bad.  I basically have to decide between two bad choices and hope I choose the least worst one.

If I have the surgery, there is a very real possibility that I will be disabled and have to leave my job of almost 21 years.  I have talked with several people who have had the surgery and none really have positive things to say about it and my situation is somewhat worse than theirs in that my tumor is sitting in the worst position possible.  So if I choose the surgery it will likely have life long consequences.

If I choose not to have the surgery I am essentially choosing to live with what I hope isn't a fast spreading cancer.  I am hoping that by some miracle the radiation and chemo I have had so far has killed all the cancer cells and I will be living with a benign tumor partially blocking my colon.  It's a dangerous gamble.  Hopefully future tests will give me more clarity but the doctors thus far have been less than encouraging.  Obviously, they are all rooting me toward the surgery but I am the one who has to live with the consequences.

So, if you are religious or spiritual pray for me.  I am only 43 years old.  This was not in my plans.  As soon as I make my decision I will update on the radio show.  My wife and I have been really struggling with this and the time to make a choice is soon.

I really appreciate those of you who have donated for my trips and have bought Stern Sticks and digital downloads.  I will continue to update via the Karl Stern Classic Wrestling Audio Show.

Thank you and God Bless

Southeastern and Continental Wrestling Audio Documentary!


Southeastern Continental Audio

I have recorded an over 2 1/2 hour audio documentary on the history and events of the wrestling promotion that made me a wrestling fan- NWA Southeastern Championship Wrestling/Continental Championship Wrestling.

Bullet Bob Armstrong
This 2 1/2 hour audio documentary talks about the origins of the company from the days of Gulf Coast Wrestling and explains how this odd territory ran both a Northern and Southern divisions.  The documentary covers such topics, personalities, and angles as The Midnight Express origins, Jerry Stubbs/Mr. Olympia, the highly regarded tag team division, the original "Tennessee Stud" Ron Fuller and his younger brother Robert.  "Bullet" Bob Armstrong and his later masked persona of "The Bullet".  The junior heavyweight division.  The controversial domestic violence angle with Dr. Tom Prichard and "Dirty White Boy" Tony Anthony.

Hotstuff Eddie Gilbert
This largely forgotten territory was rich in history and then had a hot television run in the 1980's.  From Ron Fuller to David Woods and all points in-between, I think you will love this audio documentary.

To order for just 99 CENTS simply click on the PayPal link above or below.  Once I process your order I will email you a link to download the MP3.
