** Please, CC. Do not respond with stuff about alternative therapies, I beg you.**

I found out this morning that one of my closest rehabber friend's daughter (27) has been diagnosed with stage II lymphoma (this is a conditional diagnosis - they still have to do a biopsy). I went back through reb's posts about his ordeal. What I found was both helpful and encouraging. My poor friend is overwhelmed at the moment, but I have copied bits of reb's posts to share when the time seems appropriate. I think the first one I'm going to share is that everyone, including fathers and husbands, need to let the anger go, for the patient's sake.

Anyhoo, I have told my friend that reb has been running around snowboarding and living it up in Thailand just a year later. That sort of news is bound to help some.

As reb said in one of his posts, if this were 40 years ago, the poor woman would be down for the count. But for this particular cancer there have been amazing strides.

Anyway, thanks reb, for giving us hope.
