Over at FTRradio.com, the scourge of cancer has recently exacted a heavy toll. Two of my favorite people in the “blogosphere”, Fingers Malloy and John Brodigan, have suffered devastating losses to this merciless disease. In the wake of these tragedies, the whole crew has stepped up to raise money for cancer research. They have started a fundraiser, aptly dubbed Cancer Sucks.
In light of recent events regarding the Susan G. Komen Foundation and Planned Parenthood, it’s possible to lose sight of what we should really be working toward. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t suffered a loss to cancer. I’d wager you don’t either. Let us take a moment to come together, not as partisans, but as people. Let us work toward a cure. Cancer sucks. Let it know.
