November 16, 2013 - The Best Gift Nobody Wants

There's a great deal of wisdom in this brief (3 minutes) TED Talk from 2010, by cancer survivor Stacey Kramer. It expresses a viewpoint very similar to my own, when it comes to the unexpected gifts cancer can bring. (The last several minutes are a commercial you can skip.)

I'm sorry that you have to go through a second cancer.
Me, I'm a survivor of stage IV cervical/rectal cancer.

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. See the link below for more info.
