Hello Angels, Webmaster here. I know many of you have been asking about how Blue is doing.  I’m sorry it’s taken this long to get an update out, but Blue wanted to wait until he had all the information and then it took me a while to sit down and write this up.  So here it is…
 
About six weeks ago Blue went to the hospital because he didn’t feel good and they thought he might be having a heart attack.  Turned out his heart was fine and they didn’t know what the issue was.  A couple of weeks ago it happened again, but this time they picked up something on his chest xray.  Fast forward about 10 days and many additional tests, a four day stay in the hospital and a biopsy, and I’m sorry to say it was confirmed to be lung cancer.  Based on the scans the majority of the cancer is in his right lung, but I’m sorry to say that it has also spread to different areas as well (but not to his brain).
 
There’s no specific cure for this cancer based on Blue’s age and how far it’s progressed, but chemo therapy is supposed to help retard the growth and hopefully make him feel better.  He had his first round of chemo this last weekend.  So far the biggest impact Blue is having from both the cancer and the chemo is fatigue.
 
Blue is home now and relaxing.  As Angels start coming back into the valley and want to visit, the only request is if you are sick or have recently been sick, please reframe from visiting until you have been 100% healthy for a couple of days.  Other than that, please remember that Blue is still working on building his strength back up, so currently he gets tired easily. 
 
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at ed@thekeltys.com

 About the Blue's Angels

The “Blue’s Angels” was formed in 1995 by John Kelty.  The name of the group came from John’s current 1993 1500 cc blue Goldwing which he  has named “Blue”.   The "Angels" was chosen because all the riders are all such good little boys with their toys, and most of all because we wanted prayer involved as we rode and socialized.
 
Blue’s Angel's started with six bikes from the Golden Vista Resort and four from West Phoenix.  There are now over 40 active, enthusiastic guys and girls.  Every time “Blue” meets a new person at Golden Vista he asks “why don't you buy a motorcycle?”  Many do!
 
Blue’s Angels strive for comradeship while doing a fairly dangerous hobby and enjoying every minute of the time we ride.  Blue loves people and wants them all to feel as he does.
 
In the Spring of 2012, Blue handed the leadership of the group to Bill (Dollar Bill) Barrington who did so with the mutual agreement that it remained "Blue's Angels" and that while he would coordinate the rides and the general direction of the riders, John Kelty remains "THE MAN"

 
The Angels have no specific restrictions of membership. The only requirement would be that members maintain a safe bike.   All riders are encouraged to complete a motorcycle safety course.  To be an official member one must invest $12.00 to buy a Blue's Angels Cap.  After that huge expense, there are no dues or fees.
 
The main goals are:
   to keep the group going forever
   to keep it simple and informal
   to keep the prayers flowing for all in need
