Cancer.

I didn't take this photo. But I wish I had. 

Take the healthiest person you know. The one who goes running every day and lifts weights. The one who eats only fruits and veggies while you eat chocolate. The one who is vibrant and happy and full of life and energy and all good things. She's in her thirties. She's been religious all of her life. She's been faithful. She's never married, but always lives for the day when she will be. She is getting her PhD from a high, higher institution. You were roommates in NYC and you always admired her. You love her. She's like sunshine.

Imagine that you just found out she was diagnosed with leukemia.

What do you do with that?

I'm so sorry. Cancer doesn't ever seem like a fair, rational disease. It just strikes anywhere.

Don't even know what to say other than I'm sorry.

Why must bad things happen to such good people? I've always wondered this. And then those horrible, selfish people seem to have everything going for them. I just don't understand.

Sad. I'm sorry.

oh man, it's a tough card to deal, especially when it's close to home. i was diagnosed with cancer last year, at age 21.

there's no real way to handle it, just be supportive and loving! and surround her with positive everything! so sorry!
