It seems like everywhere I turn I’m faced with cancer. I guess it is a function of getting older, but many of my peers are dealing with cancer these days. Typically it winds up being someone’s parent, but since in business you deal with people of all ages I am starting to experience colleagues taking time off to battle cancer.
My mom successfully battled cancer a couple of years back, and I can tell you that was the toughest time in my life. Watching her suffer from the chemotherapy, losing weight, losing her hair, and feeling nauseous all the time was brutal.
Cancer is complex, the treatments are complex and the emotions are complex. I know having as much data as possible was a great help to my family when my mom foughtand wonher battle.
I’m really excited to announce that Weblogs, Inc. is launching “The Cancer Blog” later this week (look for a press release mid-week). It’s in beta now, so any feedback or ideas are appreciated. It’s my sincere hope that this blog will be a place where people can find some relief, reassurance, and information to help them deal with, as Uncle Junior (right) calls it, “the big Casino.” (note: laughter and good cheer=good medicine)
And yes, my mom will be contributing to the blog. 🙂
