Hey gang, just a quick heads up today. My friend Kirk Macleod has started a new blog called Defeating Cancer. It’s exactly what it sounds like. He has it, he’s fighting it, and if the first two posts he’s written are any indication of what’s to come, I suspect that he’ll eventually put it behind him.
I receive a fair amount of mail. Some of it is negative, most of it is positive. The positive emails make me uncomfortable sometimes. It is a nice thought that anything I’ve done inspires anyone to take action, but it is people like Kirk that inspire me. My own experiences amount to little more than a massive inconvenience compared to Kirk’s. If you are looking for real courage, I would send you over to read his words every single day and be happy if you never came back again to see me–well, that’s not entirely true, but mostly!
Please go say hi and give Captain K whatever support you can. I’m proud to know him and if it embarrasses him to hear me say that he inspires me every day, well, he’ll just have to deal with it.
