A Cancer Story Guaranteed To Brighten Your Day
Cancer doesn't care who you are or what your dreams are. It is indiscriminate, striking good people and bad people, young and old.
While we are learning more and more about the broad spectrum of diseases that constitute the term "cancer," we still have a long way to go, and today's patients will get little out of laboratory advances; they need help now.
That help can come in several forms, one being hope and inspiration. So when a story comes along that delivers both of these in spades, it is imperative that we pass it along and make sure it reaches as many people who can use a brighter day as possible.
