So I'm here at home on a Friday night watching Stand Up To Cancer. This is probably one of the most touching important nights I have had in a long time. Its about time we do something like this. Not only does cancer end lives but it does so in such an ugly, painful heartbreaking way. It kills babies, children, teenagers, young adults, adults, elderly...everyone. It steels children, siblings, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, friends, teachers, co-workers, the list goes on and on. Those of us who are lucky enough to survive must battle daily struggles due to the secondary effects that treatments leave us with. If there is a better, more successful or less damaging way to treat this horrible disease it should be available to EVERYONE! I just went onto CafePress and purchased a Stand up to Cancer T-shirt (the survivor one). I sent a coupon to some of my friends. I hope everyone participates and spreads the word.

I watched it too! Even though I do not know you other than through the web... I thought of you and everyone that cancer has touched in my life. I am so glad that they finally showed how DIFFERENT cancer is in every patient. That there is good, bad but a LOT of grey area. People need to see that grey area to get that every case is different, but the people affected by it still need support! Thank you so much for all your inspiration and workds of wisedom. You have no idea how much your words have meant to me lately ... thanks!
