Dick and Gwen,

Just wanted to send a quick hello and tell you that CancerCon was amazing. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but I was so encouraged by the whole experience.

To be surrounded by 600 other young adult survivors was such a gift as it has been hard to find just 1-2 people to relate to. There was this power and support from this group of people because they have all faced or are still facing devastating news... and in spite of it, people continue to press on and despite their fears of dying or recurrence, there is a focus to "get busy living". None of us know how much time we have on this earth, but we can all be encouraged by the notion that life is too short and to pay a little more attention to right now. Maybe that just means pausing for a mental panoramic of a given moment in your day to look around for 30 seconds with intention and take it all in, whatever goodness or chaos is presently happening, but it is something we can all appreciate and this was so real in the midst of this conference.

I personally found some needed depth and confidence as I move forward - going through this experience has left me with feelings of shame and embarrasment about having a cancer diagnosis. That somehow it reveals something about myself and that I am uniquely flawed in some way... I feel like some of this came up and that I found some different ways of thinking that feel like I could grow from as I learn to embrace them. I am so thankful for this start.

So - Thank you for your donation in supporting this idea, so many others and myself.

Smiles,

Gwen - Could you give this to my Mom?
Mom,
Thank you so much for your love and support as my Mom and friend. I know this cancer business hasn't been easy on anyone and it isn't something I would wish on anyone, but I'm so thankful you have been there for me and I often think of some of my darkest days and remember your help in coming out to see me, reading to me and just passing time. Thank you and love you.
