Cancer. It’s a horrible thing. The very idea of it frightens people. Even the word is threatening. Some people call it the C-word as if careful not to say it out loud, either out of courtesy to those who have it or perhaps fear of getting it themselves (like knocking on wood). When someone contracts cancer, it consumes his or her life.
I think that if I ever got cancer, quite a few people would be quite happy and say that it couldn’t happen to a nicer person. They’d probably even send condolences to the cancer. But hey, most of those people are relatives of mine and I’d ask you not to listen to their opinions. I do know that if I got cancer, it wouldn’t cause much of a ripple in this world.
But Dave has caused a ripple — more like a tsunami actually. Watching how people have rallied to his aid in droves, you would think Dave was someone special. You would think that Dave was a person of some noteworthy achievement. You would think that whoever this Dave-guy is, he must have somehow touched the lives of many people. Well, you’d be right.
