Cancer bothers me...

Oct. 24, 2014

I know our shared purpose on FT is travel - points, in the air, where to sit, what to (or not to) eat, the best lounge, security, etc...the whole lot of it.

For whatever reason, cancer is on my mind today. In my family, we've been very fortunate as only one of my aunts has fought cancer; thankfully, she's been in remission quite a while. I'm one of six girls though and cannot help but wonder, "What if it happens to one of us?" Or what if it's one of my nieces or nephews?

Some have seen the hashtag #cancersucks - there's just no way around it. At the same time, the strength I see in the parents I know whose children fight this fight or the parents I see fighting this fight is absolutely amazing.

I wanted to share a blog post of a friend of a friend.
A real look at living with Stage 4 Breast Cancer

If the few GBP, USD, or whatever I earn helps a family, or better yet families, successfully fight cancer, it's worth.

Thanks FT for letting my air my thoughts...
