The Long Goodbye

Posted in Cancer at 10:00 am by George Smith

The shields are all destroyed and the battles have been lost. What started as a struggle to buy more livable time against the onslaught of an incurable cancer has been over for awhile and the oblivion presses close.

Like the majority of people cursed by a terminal disease, my friend did not video blog or Facebook his plight. But he was never alone or unloved and I will insist on believing that just a few warm hearts are what everyone needs in their darkest time rather than thousands of likes and empty virtual gestures from passersby.

More later. Or possibly not.
