An example for all of us

Liz got her cranes last week. She loves them too. I met her for the first time last week. She is such a lovely young woman. She looks fantastic and is in good spirits. Only one more month of chemo to go! Liz is an example of how cancer can strike anyone at any time. She is my age and very healthy, and a doctor to boot. Luckily they caught it early. We are wishing you the best Liz!

Oh, and thank you for the quote of the day - I LOVE it:

"I wake up every morning and look at myself in the mirror and say 'Everybody wishes they could look like me'"

You're HOT girl. David .... watch out!
