Three little Words

Since coming online in IW for help RFL of IW, I've been looking for a skin that reflects my profile I have created for my Bain persona and this past week I found a wonderful lady to helped me accomplish this. I was so delighted with what she created, I asked her if she could sell me a copy on that other grid because she has a shop there as well and this is where the conversion took a left turn, when she told me she was going to doctors to get her test results. I've not seen her since. That was Sunday morning.

There are three words, that 1 in 2 males and 1 in 3 female will hear in their life time You Have Cancer and are words that sends fear into those that hear it. Those three words, is a game changer to any they are spoken too. One goes from 1,000s of wishes and hopes for the future, to only one wish and only one hope, all because of three words. All the previous thoughts and emotions are plunged into focused fear of one's mortality and you are completely consumed in a free fall, that a few short heart beat before, wasn't even on you horizon. Nothing else matters anymore.

Take a good look around you. Every other male friend, family and associate you know, and one third of the females with be touched my this beast. I'm going to be turning 52 in a few months and it take a lot of effort for me, to list all the people I've lost to cancer. Sunday night I found out, a dear friend of many years, is also waiting for his results to coming in. I will be strong for him, I will be by his side, if the news is such, but privately, I am devastated.

Why do I Relay? To borrow some words a dear friend said recently her Why I Relay testimonial to spread my spirit to others who relay alongside me and to educate those who don't.

I Relay for you, I Relay for all the people I know, and with my family history, I Relay for me.
