What does cancer mean to you?

Yesterday, we kicked off Fight Childhood Cancer Week with a little bit about the Give thanks. Walk. Today, we're jumping right in and talking about what cancer means to you. And to me.

I've lost relatives close and distant and friends close and distant to cancer. I've seen, up-close, someone go through chemotherapy, radiation, and a bone marrow transplant, even lawsuits (more details at http://drugguardians.com/drug/taxotere/). I would never wish any of it on anyone.

About 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. every year, some getting mesothelioma diagnosis even. That number is defeatable. And once we beat cancer in children, we can better understand how to beat cancer in grownups. So start now. And leave your cancer stories in comments either before or after you donate (don't worry, when you click one of those donate links below, it will pop a new window and you won't lose this post).

Jason has put a ton of effort into organizing a team for this walk, so I'm asking that you donate to his page. If for some reason you'd rather my name be on your donation, here's my page, but I promise they go the same place and Jason should get the credit for the extra work he's put in here.
