Cancer. That's what.
Today is the anniversary of my cousin's toddler son dying of cancer.
One of my good friends is burying his father--who just died of cancer--today.
My uncle is fighting like hell against an aggressive type of cancer that has attacked (among other things) his spine, upon which he endured a 10 hr. surgery at M.D. Anderson yesterday.
And Saturday will be the seven year anniversary of my father losing his battle with stomach cancer.
What the FUCK, y'all? Who out there reading this hasn't been touched in some way--either personally or through a friend or family member--by this horrible, HORRIBLE disease. It just infuriates me--and breaks my heart--to think about it.
This holiday season, be thankful for every healthy day you have and don't ever, ever take that health for granted.
