A bit of a storm arose. I had to sit down with my mother in law and her son/my husband and confirm her diagnosis of cancer today. Her doctor is out of town, and well it is a small town. I see patients every day. I have divulged a grim cancer diagnosis to many, but never to a family member, to a second mother. The trail ahead is a bit frightening, and the weather is stormy, but I see tracks in the trail where others have run. I am not alone.

Here is my buddy Mike Peters signing about his cancer fight. Cancer hits us all, in a variety of ways, emotionally and physically. When a loved one is diagnosed, it is like a diagnoses to everyone involved. Fight back in your own way Lori.

Mike and a group of us climbing the stairs of the Empire Sate Building to raise awareness, having a concert on the top. During Mike's SECOND, successful fight with cancer, he chose to wear army camp fatigues as his statement to "fight back". His mantra and ritual if you will.
