Cancer robbed me of the best friend I ever had 15 years ago and I'm still not over it. Cancer has a hold on the person that has been my best friend since. His prognosis is poor. Cancer tried to kill me two years ago and failed. Cancer is finishing it's work on one of the local bass players around town and he'll be gone soon. Cancer is finishing it's work on a longtime female friend of mine.... Cancer is chewing on the woman I love right now. If you smoke, quit. If you think it can't happen to you, you're wrong. If you're ignoring the people you love in life because you need to go to work, stop it right now. Take a day off and go to the beach.
