I can't think of a single person who HASN'T been affected by cancer in some way. I personally have lost two grandparents to the disease along with several aunts and uncles. Thank God that treatment exists and that my amazing Mema Dean (read about her here) has beat this disease not once, not twice, but THREE times.

hearing an entire football field of people go quiet and watch a memorial video for those we've lost to such a horrible disease followed by a VICTORY lap of brave survivors....
beautiful candles and luminaries lit in honor or memory of cancer patients shining bright in the darkness when the sun goes down...
