Cancer has ripped through my friends and family like madman on a swather. It used to be something rare that I hardly noticed unless they were special people that were close to me, like my music teacher in school, my Uncle Rich, my mother-in-law or my beloved Grampa Dee. Lately it’s everywhere. Recently it has claimed my cousin Raymond and his wife Charmaine, my Uncle Wes, my Uncle Neil, and our close family friend Rhonda. At the current time I have 4(!) cousins or their spouses currently in active treatment or remission.
Adding insult to injury, I lost my mother to cancer this summer. It sucks.
I will be participating in the Bark for Life with MacGee in memory of my mom first of all, but in love and hope for all of my family and friends that are terrorized by this horrible disease. In their name, please support MacGee and I. Thank you.
