An Unwanted Journey: Day 0084 - Wrestling with Cancer

Sometimes you don't realize how many local cancer heroes there are in your own community. When I visit the radiation treatment suite each day and when I visit the chemotherapy suite weekly at the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre, I see lots of other patients, some of whom I get a chance to communicate with...most often, though, we just get our treatment and leave.

Today The Record has a front-page story about one such hero, a middle-aged cancer patient, Andrea Blasman, whose 18-year-old son's wrestling team from St. Mary's High School will not only be praying for her recovery, but wearing special dragonfly T-shirts in her honour at their regional wrestling tournament. You could say they are wrestling with cancer.

Good luck to Dave, and even more importantly, to Andrea in her battle. Maybe someday we'll meet at the cancer centre. Technorati Tags : , , , , , , , ,
