OP, you had the brain cancer at a young age eh? All I can say is...bravo and your post makes me feel better about any situation I could possibly be in.
We just got word today that my ma's best friend's melanoma spread to his liver.
I have to put shit into perspective, in the grand scheme of things, not much that you go through will really destory you unless you, unless you let it.
Either way, <3 you.
I am sorry to here about your moms friend I send my regards. My friend died of leukemia so I know its hard just make every moment count.
Lots of people ignore stuff and put it off till tomorrow but you got to live like there isn't going to be a tomorrow.
