Letter makes it better in midst of Cancer rehab

NOTE: I had planned on taking the day off completely from the blog -- I'm feeling a little run down and we had a bunch of folks over - but this email came in to me and I thought it was worth forwarding along. I'm excited that somebody would take the time to send this. Again, it's something  that makes me want to get healthy and get to helping people who haven't gotten the breaks that Carol-Ann and I have.


You don't know me, nor do I know you. I've never read any of your Province articles, but know you're a writer for the newspaper; what a way to start an email. Hopefully you haven't clicked delete (or trash) yet...

Anyways, just wanted to say that I stumbled upon your blog and find it rather comical and real. I applaud you for putting yourself out there and making your battle more than just cancer, you've provided another connection with the illness, whether people know you or not, that hopefully will raise even more awareness and one day find a cure. 

I've been fortunate that I've never had this direct connection with cancer, maybe it's good genes, maybe it's good luck, maybe it's just a matter of time, but I just wanted to say thank you, thank you and thank you for providing material that promotes awareness. 

Best wishes, and here's to a speedy recovery.
