I just wanted to say that no one is invincible to cancer....
I came across this story about Steve Perry (ex lead vocalist for the group Journey) and his girlfriend and it just made me cry. I've always been a fan of Steve Perry's and have followed his life. As much good that had come to his life, equally there was as much bad. He had a rough life as a child growing up poor, lost his mom (very close to her) while on tour.. then this.....
He was diagnosed with one of the deadliest skin cancers (Melanoma) just months after losing his girlfriend to breast cancer that metastasized to her lungs, bones, and finally brain. Sad story.
Anyways, I know this cancer is unrelated to our H & N cancers but I just wanted to share that none of us are invincible to cancer.....even our ROCKSTARS! <*** src="/sites/all/libraries/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/***/smiley-wink****" alt="Wink" title="Wink" border="0" />....we're not alone.
