Before I die ...

I had this awesome (if I do say so myself) post for this morning.  It’s title is “Before I Die, I Want To …”  But then yesterday happened.  Yesterday, I learned about Isaac and Vanessa.  Two kids fighting cancer.  Kids and cancer do not belong in the same sentence.  Many of us have been touched by cancer but it takes on a whole new meaning when kids are involved.  That isn’t the way things are supposed to happen.

Yesterday, Erin from Living in Yellow introduced her readers to Isaac. A beautiful 6 year-old boy with an amazing spirit who fought and beat cancer once, only to have it come back with a vengeance.  As I have learned all to well, cancer does not fight fair. Cancer sucks! His parents online journal is here.  Please visit Living in Yellow to find out how you can help.

Then last night, this request from Giuliana Rancic via twitter:

As of right now, Vanessa has over 109,000 followers. I hope she is feeling the love because it is there for the taking.  You can read more about Vanessa’s journey here.

Because of yesterday, I have rewritten this morning’s post. It now reads:  Before I die, I want to see the eradication of cancer.

Watch this inspiring 6.20 minute video by Candy Chang, “Before I die I want to …”.  I hope you will be inspired.
