I’m 35 and I may suddenly have lost the rest of my life. I’m panicking, just a bit.

Thanks for sharing your story. Having had numerous family members and friends battle cancer (with outcomes both good and not-so-good) over my 54 years, I can tell you that 99% of the key to survival is attitude.

We’ve never met, but I can tell that you have the secret inside of you, and that you have already determined not to give an inch to this disease. Your relative youth and fitness will serve you well.

Every day is a gift, for every one of us. Sadly, it often takes a diagnosis like this to put things in perspective. But none of us is guaranteed tomorrow, are we?

Those of us out here are expecting to hear good things from you as you continue this fight. Please let us know how you are doing.

And as you pointed out, don’t forget:

  1. Don’t sweat the small stuff
  2. It’s all small stuff.
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
