It is one of the biggest things you don't the people you meet will change your life. When you get diagnosed with cancer, it's such a lonely feeling. No one could possibly know how you feel. What you don't realize is that there are so many people who can actually relate.

The punches never stop coming, and while we always keep fighting, eventually we're not going to be able to defend an onslaught. But I think I've learned that it's okay to stay down for the ten-count and embrace the knockout.

By far, the happiest collective group of individuals were the children, many of whom had lost everything in the tragic earthquake just two years prior... even their parents. They had such an infectious sparkle about them, and every kindness given to them was received with humble gratitude.

Today, as I look at the most ridiculous Christmas card I've ever seen, I can't help but smile and think about the deeper meaning of what my friend actually pulled off. He purposely set out to make himself look as bad as humanly possible, and we love him for it.
