bailey's plea

Bailey is the son of a high school friend that I just reconnected with. He has Rhabdomyosarcoma and is fighting tall odds at CHOC (Children's Hospital of Orange County).

Rhabdomyosarcoma is a fast-growing, highly malignant tumor which accounts for over half of the soft tissue sarcomas in children. Rhabdomyosarcoma tumors arise from a cell called a "rhabdomyoblast", which is a primitive muscle cell. Instead of differentiating into striated muscle cells, the rhabdomyoblasts grow out of control. Since this type of muscle is located throughout the body, the tumors can appear at numerous locations.
His comments in the first video are a good reminder of what's most important in life.
