Hi, Suzanne!

I really related to your column today (and so sorry about your mom)...a friend of mine had breast cancer 2 years ago and it just came back so she's got to go through more surgery and yuckiness. "Don't die twice" is such great advice! I remember hearing someone else said, "Most people spend their lives running away from something that isn't after them" and my mother always said, "Don't borrow trouble". Wise words. Some day I will leave this planet - don't we all? - but until I do, I'm going to play Scarlett O'Hara: "I won't think about that today. I'll go crazy if I do. I'll think about that tomorrow at Tara. After all, tomorrow is another day!"

Love you,


Hearing the big "C" alone is frightening enough. Just this year, three of my friends died of cancer and they're all still young in their thirties. Was it radiation? I don't know. The only thing I know is the big "C" makes one stronger everyday ... maybe not physically, but spiritually, as they learn to appreciate everyone, everything, and every minute in their lives. Most "C" bearing people learned how to feed their faith and so their fears are starve to death.
