Meet fellow cancer bloggers

I've also received some cell-naming ideas from some fellow cancer bloggers. DavidE suggested "spore no more". How very Dr. Seussian!

David is a good friend of one of my neighbors, and he was diagnosed with prostate cancer about a year ago, when he was just 42 years old. He has been blogging since the diagnosis, and you can check out his blog here.

David also founded the FLHW Foundation, which raises money for prostate cancer research. Those letters stand for his personal cancer-fighting philosophy: Faith Love Hope Win. The foundation sells blue wristbands (similar to the Lance Armstrong bands) bearing these four words. So stop on by and order one. Or two. Or ten.

I received another suggestion from JohnW: a variation on my aunt's "cella-butt". John says, "How about the Cellibacytes? Then they can't, or shouldn't, reproduce." John is battling chronic lymphocytic leukemia and says he is "a lymphomaniac with too many lymphocytes." He is beginning a second round of chemo, which seems to be going well, and we wish him the best of luck! Check out John's blog.
