It was April, 2012 when I was officially diagnosed with localised prostate cancer whilst working a 12 month contract at CenITex, as a UNIX SME.
In early May, 2012, the ETS Hosting department, @ CenITex was targeted to be wrapped up whilst I was under going initial assessment and diagnostic procedures, to plan treatment options, technics, etc.
In early June, 2012, I under went da Vinci Intuitive surgery ( R.A.L.P. )
In mid June, 2012, I received formal notification, that my position @ CenITex, UNIX SME, was to be added to the list of positions to be abolished or transitioned to other roles by mid July, 2012.
In mid June, 2012, I initiated the grievance processes associated with my contract and the V.P.S. employment guidelines.
Something to do ?
While recovering from Prostate Cancer treatment
$65k in debt due to cancer treatment
not having a lot of spare time
being un employed.
After all, CenITex, executed the termination clause, after they were formally notified of my need to take leave to treat my Prostate Cancer.
I'm currently still applying for positions, to re join the work force, along with following up with my initial treatment options, diagnostic tests, etc, etc, etc.....;)
In the mean time, I'm currently looking for donations / gifts, to help fund my
Open Sourced Project Developments
and to continue writing / developing
foo crypt, A Tale of Cynical Cyclical Encryption.
Which is a tale, based on events and activities, arising out of the acquisition of Sun Micro Systems, by Oracle Corporation.
diagnostic / treatment options, past, present and future.
