Brief description of my bout with cancer

Cathy Taylor asked me if I would write a piece about my bout with cancer and the medical system, so I did and the Register printed it on Sunday in the Commentary section. I know some people who read this already know much more tha is in this piece, but I think it's not a bad summary. It elicited quite a few comments from readers and more e-mails to me than my articles normally get. Not surprising, I suppose. Most people tend to like that personal stuff.

"Most people tend to like that personal stuff."
Have you ever wondered why that is?I know you're smart and have thought and researched your opinions, but so what?
A writer touches us. He either speaks to us or he doesn't.
Have you ever changed someone's mind with the power of your ideas?
Have you ever influenced someone with the power of who you are?

What is more powerful? Ideas or who we are?

I don't think I've changed anyone's mind, but as they deal with me,, I see them thinking.

Really like the graphical design and navigation of the site, easy on the eyes and good content. other sites are just way too overflowing with adds.
