Today is International Fuck Cancer Day, overlapping with JayCon XI.

Here in Portland, we'll be celebrating with life, love and pizza. Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, take a moment, or donate a few bucks or an hour of your time, visit a cancer patient, or just pray/meditate/send good energy/hoist a glass.

Life is what you make of it, but it doesn't have to be all about cancer.

A good thought. Some cancers grow very slowly; others are what they call "aggressive."

Here's to you!

And thank you- I'm waiting for a biopsy appointment myself (stupid abnormal mammogram)- and this was a good post to read.

Many, many Happy Birthdays to you.
