A few days ago, I found out that a high school friend died of breast cancer. She was 43. Less than a month ago, a co-worker lost her life to the same disgusting disease. She just turned 40. Another high school classmate of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and has bravely been fighting it. I've sent encouraging words as she went through chemo, and would rejoice from afar as she completed each round. Rejoicing, as poison was being sent into her body to attempt to kill this awful thing.
According to cancer.org, in 2015 there will be an estimated 1,658,370 new cancer cases diagnosed. These are NEW cases...JUST in the United States. Cancer does not discriminate. It does not care if you are rich or poor; black, white or yellow; man or woman; old or young.
