i don't even know what to say about it anymore. pretty sure everyone i'm related to either died of cancer or had it when they died or had it before they died. multiple experiences with it with my parents have left me scared and angry. a few days ago i found out a good friend is about to receive what was once referred to as a bone marrow transplant that will involve chemo to kill almost everything inside him and leaving him in the hospital for a minimum of a month with a 6 month recovery in the hopes of ridding him of lymphoma. today i was told that a daughter of a friend (who happens to be almost exactly the same age as larsson) is going into isolation for a minimum of four months as part of a chemotherapy treatment to attack the cancer she has been battling for some time. cancer is fucking evil.
mike and haven, you will be in my thoughts. to everyone else out there fighting this or who knows and cares for someone fighting this, i wish you the best.
