I found an amazing blog yesterday - sat up much of the night reading back entries. It is called "My Cancer" and is the cancer journey story of a successful professional , Leroy Seivers, who has been fighting (his word though he's not sure he likes it) metastatic cancer for two and half years. He and his wife are getting into the hard part now - the considering hospice part. They are still sharing their experience and have built a tremendous community and provided so much support and connection (I only barely managed to touch the comments but there is a large community of readers). This blog is one more example of how people can use absolutely any experience to grow and to help others. We are not what happens to us, but what we make of what happens to us.
