My May 22 post
May 22, 2009, cancer, but I made it.
May 22, 2003, cancer, and Frances did not.
My mother, who would be the same age as you if she had made it, died a few days from now in 1994, at 43 years old from breast cancer. She fought it from about 36 through to 43.
Bitter and I are both very glad you made it through your ordeal with the disease. It's a pretty horrid thing if it goes the other way.

There's still plenty to do and see on this wobbly old ball of dirt.

Bio-MEMS & Nanobiophotonics are making stunning strides for Oncological research & personalized cancer care. It seems the advances are being realized weekly. Very sorry for your Loss with Frances David. With Kind Regards, Marc

My hat (if I was wearing one) is off to any cancer survivor and my thoughts are to those who didn't fight the battle. In the same month, I lost one grandfather to leukemia and then had my other grandfather learn he had colon cancer, and he thankfully survived and has been cancer-free now for 10 years.

Apparently, they did put everything back together right three years ago!

Nothing can keep David Hardy down. Not MAIG, not George Soros, not snakebites, not scorpion stings. He has to laugh in the face of cancer too, because it's better than to weep in defeat!

Thinking good thoughts of you this week, Mr. Hardy.

A very moving tribute to a beautiful, talented, and courageous woman.
