cancer sucks.

so, lots of things are going on these days. I finally got done with the last assignments of the year, and a final presentation to do. relieved that there are no longer any more "homework" things to do.

I am feeling a little under the weather, with a non-descriptive soreness in my thoracic area. and, i am kinda concerned about it. 'cause i am never sick, and it seems like i have been a fricken hypochondriac these past few weeks. and, i don't know why. but... clinic tomorrow? all i know, it that it is frustrating. and uncomfortable.

My friend Beth is in Toronto this week, because her dad is sick. CANCER SUCKS. i hate it that her family is going through all of this, and i know that when an illness happens in a family for years, people learn how to cope. but, it is scary, i think. it is scary to see people that you love, sick and not able to do what they want to do. It is hard to be the stronghold in a family, and support the other members who are also staying upright. It is hard to be in school to be a health professional, and understand the terms that they are saying, and be able to read what is going on.

My re-committment date for Team in Training is on Friday. And, i am nervous about it. i am at 34% of my funds required. I have some good things coming up which are hopefully going to bring in quite a bit of cash. but, i am nervous because if i don't make the require amount by june, i am supposed to be able to cover the difference. and, i would not be financially able to do that. but, when I think of what beth is going through... how could i think of backing down?
SIGH. not sure what to do.

would you donate to my effort to help fight Leukemia and Lymphoma?
