I wanted to tell you about a great piece that was done on ABC's Nightline program. It aired a few weeks ago but I just got around to watching it last night. The guy's name is Frank O'Day and he is going through treatment for Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He was very inspirational and the video link is below. Additionally, I was excited because Dr. Karen Albritton, an expert in young adult cancer, was also in the piece. I met Dr. Albritton a couple years ago when I spoke in Los Angeles to doctors from around the country. It was at a conference for CureSearch (COG) and my speech was about young adult cancer.
Today, I am thankful: for a relaxing lunch with a great friend, seeing some of my old co-workers, getting a package in the mail!
Rachel, first let me say i love that you are making the effort to share your experiences, wisdom and especially your gratitude with others... it is awesome to see you in action.
And i too watched the story on Nightline... things are definitely changing in the young adult world... long overdue and great to see.
Live life. Love life.
Frank was my roommate and a great person. Amazing how he has connected with so many people.
