Taking a Day Off

Today I will be by John's side as we attend the funeral of one of his friends. His friend lost his battle with cancer last weekend. His friend was young, only 42. He leaves behind a beautiful wife and three children. I can't imagine how they must be feeling right now. My heart breaks for them over their loss.

I know it is breast cancer awareness month, but let's make it cancer awareness month. John lost his uncle to cancer just a few months ago, and it seems everyone has a story of loss lately. I feel like there has to be more that we can do. So today I leave you with a link to the American Cancer Society website.  I also ask that you take a moment to appreciate what you have and hug your family for those who may have recently lost a family member.

  2. I lost a friend to cancer last week too. He was also young at 51. It has made me appreciate and be very thankful for what I have. My thoughts are with you both today.

  4. Sorry to hear of your loss. I just went to a funeral on Friday for my daughter's friend's mom, who died of cancer at only 45. She had two daughters, 7 and 9, whom she left behind. :(
