We're Scots. We fight goddammit. 

The week of December 19, 2021 Greg Smith - lovingly known to many as Smitty, Poppa, Señor Pepé, or just Greg - was diagnosed with grade 4 glioblastoma brain cancer. Glioblastomas are a fast growing tumor. We suspect that the tumor had been growing for about two months. His partner had noticed differences in his behavior, memory, and cognition, so  Greg went in for an MRI. The scans revealed a 4 cm tumor in his frontal lobe with smaller tumors branching out in to other areas of his brain.
