What a Difference Two Years Make

Two years ago, it was cancer surgery and preparing for chemo.

Now it's graduation and preparing for a job. (Yes, he DOES have one! Can I get an Amen!! And not only that, so does his girlfriend!)

Cancer taught all of us a lot, I think. Things like

-- bad things don't just happen to other people
-- thank GOD for healthcare reform!! If it hadn't passed and he, like 85% of college grads, hadn't found a job with benefits, he'd be out in the cold for follow-up treatment.

And most important...
-- when a girlfriend goes to chemo treatments with you every day for hours on end when she could be out doing something else? She's a keeper.

Congratulations, Mike and Marie!
