Auction quilt UPDATED

So I posted the wallhanging/quilt in an earlier post. Here is a picture of my husband and I with Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly - who is a survivor of H&N SCC. He was kind enough to sign the quilt and it was auctioned off and brought in $150. Very emotional evening for my husband and I.

    Cool

    Really is a great picture, and so good of him to be part of it. When the famous people get H&N it hits the news, and I've wondered if any of them take the time to venture to our forum...Michael Douglas, NBA coach George Karl, and now word has it actor Val Kilmer has it in the throat, and has a trachea tube. Maybe they're too important to converse with us little people, but obviously not Jim Kelly. Seems like I've heard of a few other important people who've had, and several who have died over the past couple years. And in history, there's Babe Ruth, President Ulysses Grant and Sigmund Freud...You know, people are just people, and in the eyes of the Lord I reckon they're not any more important than we are. Again, great picture.

    Book about Grover Cleveland

    There is an interesting book about Grover Cleveland and the "secret" surgery he had due to the tumor he had. For many years it was denied and the white house covered up his illness because at that time they didn't want a sitting President to appear to be weak or ill. The surgeon and everyone involved was sworn to secrecy and they actually did the operation on a yacht! One journalist found out and attempted to publish but they categorically denied it and shut down his career. The title is "The President is a Sick Man". I read it two summers ago before cancer became a part of our lives.
