I am leaving on a little vacation, a couple weeks back home to Ohio. When I get back, and after the summer camp, I will be touching on a touchy subject. Facing death knowing that it could come at any moment. I have been looking down that double barrel for a long time. When diagnosed with uncurable cancer I realized how many loose ends that had to be tied up before my time came. Maybe I can help some of you, regardless of age, to prepare, to be ready if this, God forbid, should ever happen to you. It will happen, we all know that, but most of the time it is unexpected. I believe all my loose ends are taken care of and it now gives me relief. This subject may be taboo to some, others may feel it is not a necessary discussion for them. That's OK. But take it from me, I've been there, I am there. I live it every day. This disease could take me any day, any hour. An example is the female surgeon who had MM, performed surgery in the morning, collapsed at a seminar that evening and died within hours. Having a disease with an average survival of 24 to 36 months after diagnosis, I have survived for 54 months. How would you cope? How will you cope----some day? Think about it. Will pick it back up later on.
