What I know
If left untreated after diagnosis, a cat with it will die within a month and a half on average.
It's typically treated with chemotherapy, which can extend a cat's life by 6 months 70 percent of the time. But there's a 30 percent chance a cat can live two years or more.
It sort of reminds me of constantly being in the move-in zone of a SNG, having to push all-in with any ace, suited connector or pocket pair. Most of the time you'll get folds, but eventually someone will call, hoping to snap you off.
It's his biggest tourney ever and if a 30 percent chance will help him get into the money to buy him the rest of his life, I like the sound of that.
