Default Brian Underhill, GURPS writer, needs help

Forwarded to me with permission to forward:
Hey man! I don't even know where to start. Turns out I have Marfan syndrome which is a genetic disorder of connective tissue. It's why I am so tall, etcetera. They found out two years ago I had a genetic heart defect and ascending aortic aneurysm. So I had to have open heart surgery, get a valve replaced, get most of my aorta replaced from my heart up to the branch. Survived that. Then this week I was diagnosed with colon cancer. Things just not looking at for me lately health-wise. That's kind of it in a nutshell.

Wow. I was told by two cardiologists years ago about Marfan's, but so far have been able to function pretty well without surgery. I'll share this on social media.
