Kindred Spirit.

talk_at_antonelli“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. “Pooh?” he whispered.
“Yes, Piglet?”
“Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s hand. “I just wanted to be sure of you.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
As I write this there is an article coming out today in the Spirit Newspaper, a community paper out of Fishtown here in Philly. The article is titled “He Put he Can in Cancer,” it is about yours truly and authored by my good friend Jeffro. I am five years cancer free. For those of you even remotely touched by the disease you know that the five year mark is a unique milestone, a graduation of sorts. When I was first diagnosed I reached out for many, many hands, like Piglet did with Pooh in the quote above. Numerous friends and family answered my call with a healing touch, some lifting me higher when I couldn’t even lift myself. The fact that my friends are still lending a hand to this day is a testament to how truly fortunate I am; not only fortunate to be cancer free for the last five years but to have people in my life that truly inspire me and that I will always feel indebted to for the gifts that they have given me.
You can read the article in its entirety here, be sure to leave a comment.
