World Cancer Day

Today is World Cancer Day. As some or most of you know my mother died from cancer. What you don't know is that she fought it for 15 years before it got the better of her. During those 15 years, she raised me, carted me to all my sporting events, was my cub scout leader, and friend. She worked full time for Metropolitan life and help comfort those who had just been through the mastectomy process that she had been through. She worked as a volunteer for the American Cancer Society. In other words as my Mother was battling something she also was living. My Mother died in 1979 at the age of 40. She lived a pretty full life for only being here that short time. I just wanted to say since March 24th 1979 there hasn't been a day since, that I haven't thought about her. Joan Muller Granger you were a really special lady and thanks for being my Mother. To all who are battling any form of Cancer now, don't give up the fight. We only have one chance at this life so make the most of it. Just thought I'd mention it.
