Hey, but what about...

My friend sent me this article the other day on long-term childhood cancer survivors. Not bad, but other than a fleeting mention on page 2, it is missing one critical piece. The "probably sterile" one on page 10.

I'm not angry. I'm not bitter. I am just hopeful that as the circle of survivors grows and becomes a powerful demographic and social voice, those of us with the fortune to survive and the misfortune to do so before freezing eggs was even a possibility will be more than a footnote or one sentence in an eight page article.

i'm glad you aren't angry. i guess both of us have had different amounts of time to deal with the grief and loss. I'm pissed. But hey, to each their own. I have just been able to catch up on your cycle and I'm so sad that I was not there for you. I wish you would have written to tell me what happened, I feel like such a crappy friend. I'm so sorry. You are such an inspiration to me, always so positive and upbeat.
You are a model of courage. Now if only you'd rub off on me...*wink*
