Cancer

http://animoto.com/play/PUyvIzOL2enHmNx2oyW2Ug



For twenty five years I have been a cancer survivor. I am grateful every day.
There are many not so lucky.You will see my little buddy Eli featured in this cancer post. He is fighting like a warrior against neuroblastoma. Check out his story. His father is quite a writer. Also featured will be poems written by my friend, Rebecca, who at age 26,lost her battling stage 4 ovarian cancer. Her poetry reflects the devasting effects and is sometimes emotionally difficult to read. Eli and Rebecca put a face on this disease for me.I hope you will join me in any way you can to help end cancer.

For me this candle represents
a constant burning prayer for
all those suffering from this disease.




Won't you join me in praying,
not only for those suffering from this disease,
but those working so hard to find cure.

when i read your blog, i thought of myself and how unfair i had been to those people like you who suffered from cancer.
i thought i had cancer once because (right now, i think) i was delusional, i had mistaken some signs of my physiological body as cancer... i got depressed, suicidal and bitter.
i saw your blog and felt sorry for those who suffered and survived truly- kept fighting cancer, for their lives... to think i almost killed myself from my unnecessary delusions.
thank you for making us realize how life really is important.
