He was only 43.
He was diagnosed with lung cancer about 4 months ago. Never smoked. Was a personal fitness trainer in the most incredible shape. He exuded health. He was such a kind soul, in the body of a very handsome shell. I knew him since high school, and he was always a truly nice, sincere person. If you look on his social network links, everyone says the same thing. He was a true man, he remained that way till that cancer came lurking around.
I am so over Cancer!! I hate Cancer.
This is the second person I personally know in the past eight months that has been over taken with this insipid disease. John Hannon to Lung Cancer and Drew Somers to Melanoma. Both great men. Truly a loss to us here on earth.
I don't know who invented cancer....why cancer exists....why it plants itself on each individual in a different arena...why it is so damn sneaky making one have to "catch" it before it "catches" you.
I don't like it....I want it fixed.
I know that we all are touched by someone who has cancer, I am thankful for the friends that I have who have survived it. I still hate it though, because it killed two really fine people.....
That I know.
I guess we keep plugging along~walking for the cure~spinning for the cure~playing golf for a cure~whatever we can do to promote the finances to allow those amazing scientists to find that CURE.
Rest in Peace John Hannon. I know your family and friends are really going to miss you.
