I feel so sad tonight.
Apparently once you turn 40 all your class mates all start getting cancer and dying.
Yesterday my friend Casandra passed away after NINE MONTHS of being sick. Nine months is not very long. She was only 39 years old. She has 4 kids, two of who are still in school. One of her older girls is pregnant so she would have been a grandma by the end of the year.
Instead she spent the last few months fighting and then slowly dying. It's just not fair. Such a sweet person that never hurt anyone.
Gone is the 1st chair clarinet, hard worker, super smart straight A getter, silly girl with a great laugh and smile.
Tonight I was scrolling through Facebook and I see another friend of mine from high school is also diagnosed with cancer. Apparently they've said they can't do anything else and he's got six months to live. AND a one year old and a three year old. I'm just so completely devastated for him and his family. He's never going to be able to see his little ones grow up. Someone has set up a fund raiser for him so they can go to Disneyland and to help with their medical bills.
Please if you can spare a few dollars can you click on this link and send him a few?
