To my readers today was an upsetting day and I really don’t have anything of interest to discuss. I received a call today from a very close friend who lives on the other side of the country. He was diagnosed with cancer, being a mere 30 years old and he has cancer. I know it does not have to be a death sentence anymore and some cancers are beatable but it scary when someone close to you and as young as you is diagnosed.
The rest of my day was spent in contemplation of what I can do to help him and his wife. He is a VERY strong and kind person and I believe he can beat this as long as he keeps believing. When cancer hits this close to home it hits you harder than you can think. I am not a religious person so praying does me know good. All the praying in the world will not change the things that happen, if we really want to make a difference then HELP or DONATE to the organizations that treat these horrible diseases.
The more time and money we put into actual science and research to learn how to beat these diseases the better chance we have of developing a cure. The golf tournament proceeds that I sponsored and played in yesterday were donated to the cancer society, that is how you make a difference and support those that really do need it.
