I found out this morning that I share this cancer-versary with both Liz and Lance! I've had about 4 hours of sleep. Well, boo hoo! I figured if I slept another hour, what's 5 hours? (not enough sleep, that's what!)
I arrived home late last night from school where I'm learning how to take life less seriously. Or maybe I'm learning how to ride the BIG waves instead of allowing them to knock me off my board. (?) School is helping. Being alive helps. Blogging helps. Sleep would help if I only I could get some.
When you are looking through the comments below, please go visit and read these commenters blogs. Find inspiration in their stories, whether they suffered from a cancer diagnosis or they shared in the care of a loved one; there is inspiration to be found all around us and isn't that why we are here?
Today (Food and Wine) bloggers and now us as well as others are coming together to honor this LIVESTRONG Day 2009 as the 13th anniversary of Lance Armstrong's cancer diagnosis and the 2nd anniversary of my diagnosis and now the 2nd anniversary of Liz's cancer diagnosis and who else? Lance doesn't know it yet though we are all going to celebrate this day every year for the rest of our lives. I used to think Lance Armstrong was no big deal until I was diagnosed with cancer. Now he is larger than a bill board.
