I don't feel I have any choice except to move forward.

I think this is an incredibly important statement. I have a tumour on my spinal cord at around C7. I am told at best I'm supposed to be a quadrilplegic and at worst I'm not supposed to be able to breathe but have somehow avoided both eventualities which nobody can explain. Was there a moment when all felt lost but that moment gave you the inspiration to continue moving forward?

Nice to see the tumour not showing any growth but it's shitty about how expensive it is to keep an eye on it. It doesn't seem right.

I found I'd had a tumour on my spinal cord my whole life a couple of years ago (I'm 44). I've gone from having an MRI every six months to every two years because the growth isn't signficant.

I found Jar Jar funny and didn't have a problem with him at all so I wondered what your take is on why there was so much opposition to him.

I find most people don't get that. They often seem to perceive themselves as taking a really negative approach if they were in the situation instead of realising that it's just what it is so you get on with it.

That's a great approach. Thanks for doing the AMA, it's been really good to read.
