Cancer's Reality

Today Cassie and I will be attending a funeral. A college friend of mine watched his sister (age 30) battle breast cancer just to fall victim to sarcoma, a very advanced cancer that found its way into her lungs.

I have only been to two funerals in my entire life, both being grandparents of mine that were "old". My heart goes out to this family who's daughter/sister was stolen at such a young age. I expect this to be very eye opening experience for us.

It's hard to believe that only a couple of years ago I didn't even know what an oncologist was and now I will see first hand the painful affects of cancer and what is the end result for so many families each year.

Peace and love to this family...they have been through so much.
