Meaning of life

For the Newbies


For those of you who are just stumbling upon this blog, I have had a wild ride with tongue cancer (squamous carcinoma of the left later tongue and floor of mouth.) You might want to start at the beginning of "The Cancer Chronicles" for the full story located in the archives under "Search by Label" on the lower right. I'm still alive - a survivor - but it wasn't pretty nor easy, yet I am one of the lucky ones. That thought should bring great happiness in the fact that I'm alive, but the reality is I get depressed when I realize how many have lost the battle. Many of the people I grew to know during my journey are no longer here. I NEVER like to ask "Why?" It breaks my heart when I count all those I befriended and realize they left so many friends and family behind, and so far I survive. There is never an answer to "Why?"

There was one question I did ask repeatedly during the toughest times.
