I don't normally meme, nor talk about my "real life", but I'll make an exception for this."In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it."

My aunt has been fighting cancer for years, a beloved family friend and old drama director at grade school has recently gone into chemo for leukemia, and another family friend passed away about a year ago to the same illness. It always seems so strange, looking at the advances we've made in medicine, that we still have this disease that we still know so little about and that claims 30% of those who contract it, even after all the tricks modern medicine can throw at it.
