I've been touched by cancer many times in my life. Through friends, family, and this year, it hit close to home, with my wife.
I'm participating in this year's Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life so that hopefully, someday, my children will never have to go through what I've gone through.
As for my wife, she's doing pretty well. The surgery went successfully, they removed her thyroid and she's started what will be a lifetime regime of taking a replacement thyroid hormone. As for what's next, now we wait for the rest of the treatment plan.
And celebrate life.
