    Everyone knows I'm Boonite from up in N.C and chat with all during football games, so this year I booked plane and we have two tickets to Texas kickoff in Houston, but found out I have a cancer and just took round 1 of chemo last Thursday, will take another Sept 3 ( so I would be back. But has anyone had anything like this happen to any close relatives, I need to know if I should avoid flight and crowds until this is cleared up. Any knowledgeable people on this please chime in.... I really want to go, but health issues are most important. Geaux Tigers

    Wow, man, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Perseverance and positivity will get you through it.

    While undergoing chemo, you will likely be immune suppressed and energy depleted. Thus, you will be susceptible to infection. Traveling by plane to a football game will expose you to thousands of strangers, many who are likely to be carrying something. I would stay home, watch it on TV, and let your body deal with all that you will be going through without adding unnecessary other challenges.

    Sorry to hear of your diagnosis and prayers to you from California. That said, what does your doctor think? After that I think things to consider would be your WBC, your overall physical outlook, and your mental well-being. If your WBC is okay, if you are feeling good, and going to a game would lift your spirits, then why not go?

    I have had friends and family who have traveled and not traveled and it seemed to be a very individual decision.

    Uscv, I guess oncologist is my answer, but I sure didn't want to tell her about it. She says no to everything, like a wife haha

    A doctor will never tell you to go...liability and all. And yet YOU are the patient, it's ultimately your decision, so do what you believe is right. What does your heart tell you? You can never go wrong there Boone Tiger.

    Geaux Tigers and Fight On!
