My friend and fellow mental health blogger has just been diagnosed with lung cancer. Please go on over an lend some support to GM Roper at GM's Corner.
As GM says, this kind of diagnosis is a "kick in the teeth." Life can certainly do that to a person. We never expect that it will be ourselves or someone we care about that gets kicked....
I know that if this can be licked, then GM will be the one to do it -- and not just overcome it; but overcome it with grace, wit and courage.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, GM.
