Today, I'm eight years kidney cancer-free. Lots has changed in my life since my diagnosis and treatment. I have much to be celebrate. I also have much to be sober about, including the current illness of my father (stage 4 bladder cancer) and other friends who are waging their own battles with pancreatic and breast cancers.
If nothing else, please do as I'm doing today -- take a moment to savor a wonderful meal, hug (and laugh with) your loved ones, and do something healthy for your mind/ body. None of us are promised tomorrow. But we can all make today glorious.
