There were two AMAZING fund raisers for my family this week. We were blown away by the generosity, love and kindness that the organizers, hosts, emcee’s and participants displayed. You guys have got us. Thank you.

So since I’m riding the coattails of HOPE and HUMANITY this week, I’ve got no gripes, no bad news, no messages of perseverance and adversity. But I do have this. A list of all of the things that possibly could have given me cancer. This is by no means an exhaustive list and since it’s hard to actually pinpoint when my cancer started, it’s probably fair to say we can’t blame all of these things, but here they are. I’ll list them alphabetically just to have some sort of order.

  • A Reason (as in Everything happens for a….)
  • Bad Genes
