One-Year Cancer Free

Anniversary & Celebrations

Today marks an anniversary: one-year cancer free. I am thankful. I think a celebration is in order, so next week, my family and I plan on having a nice meal together to mark the happy occasion. Thank you to everyone who was there and supported me, notably my wife, in various ways, during my time battling this horrible disease.

For anyone who wants to read a personal account of an individual making sense of and dealing with cancer, you can read my blog posts here. The writer in me has a need to write, make sense of what is taking place within me; how successful I have been in this endeavor is for you, the reader, to judge. Cancer, like many diseases, affects the mind as much as it affects the body. There is a wholeness to us that becomes more evident, more known, when parts of that whole are under attack. So, perhaps, at the suggestion of an old friend, I might turn it to a short book. One day. Perhaps.

Shabbat Shalom and Shanah Tovah. כתיבה וחתימה טובה (Ketivah VeChatimah Tovah).
