A sincere thank you

Hey kids!

Welcome to another year.  Today being a Monday, means it’s the last day I’m going to feel halfway decent for a week or so.  Tomorrow is my “long” chemo, and it usually leaves me feeling awful.  But, I would rather talk about something else today.

There is going to be a fundraiser in my honor, Monday January 14th.  This has been in the works for a number of weeks.  It’s an amazing thing to know that people would be willing to do that for me.  In fact, during the process of planning this, I have heard from many people, and I’ve come to realize that even with my cancer, I’m one of the luckiest people on the planet.

I’ve been given an “It’s a Wonderful Life” opportunity.  I have been able to see a glimpse of what my life has meant to others.  Before this, I had no idea.  I’ve always lived my life trying to be kind to others, and do what I could for charity.  But, it’s been the personal things that have touched me. 

To those of you that have done so much for me, I say thank you.  The love you have shown me is more touching to me than I could ever put into words. 

Thank you

A friend of mine whose daughter had breast cancer told me recently that she used to think chemotherapy was a terrible terrible thing. But after it saved her daughter’s life, she said she’s so thankful it’s there. Good luck, man.
