Thursday, October 26, 2006Please Visit Mel's Meaningless Ramblings
My blog buddy Mel got some very bad news this week. They found out her father has lung cancer. I am appealing to all the readers of my blogs to visit Mel and send her your thoughts, prayers and best wishes.
I know that some of you have gone through this before. I also know that some of you have had family members go through this before. Mel said her father was a heavy smoker, but as I have been saying for over a year now, smoking should not be a factor in getting the treatment and research dollars to find a cure for this disease. And blaming smoking, though one of the best things you can do to prevent this disease, does not help the people who never smoked a day in their lives. Mel credits her dad for being the reason she NEVER smoked.
So, please take a moment out of your day to visit Mel. Keep her family in your thoughts and prayers, and remember that next month is Lung Cancer Awareness month. What a good time to consider quitting smoking, if you are a smoker, talking to your doctor abouta little nagging cough you have, and being a voice for those with the disease. And even if you don't do all that stuff, still stop by and give Mel your best.
