To all those who know someone who's survived cancer
My 15 year old son Tim who, as you know is a cancer survivor of almost 7 years, found this video of a song called Save You by a band called Simple Plan. All people featured in it are cancer survivors. One of the band members' brothers is a survivor, featured at the end. Watch it, read the text, listen to the words, and tell me you aren't moved by it. I was. I cried. Well done to all those who have survived. You are fighters. And sincere sympathy for those who know someone who didn't survive. We all know someone. It's something that can affect any one of us. But this is a message of hope, meant to be positive. Thanks for looking. 07/02/09.

    And look, you're a creative person too! I always like to learn about new people on the net, and then finde they're crafty and inspired and have a cause in their lives. Wonderful!
