Pat, what a frightening weekend you must have had. What a rollercoaster you were on during that time.

Susan, this is a wonderful post. I had not been aware that Roger Ebert's cancer had gotten so far. I too think he's brave for sitting for such a portrait. Good for him. It opens awareness, educates us and helps us deal with ordinary people in our lives who may be dealing with the same thing.

One of my best friends lost her sister to oral cancer just last year. The sister had a lesion on her tongue that she had ignored for far too long, out of fear. Turns out that most likely had she gone to a dentist or specialist sooner, she'd have had surgery and chemo and been OK. It was a really sad time in the family and my friend is still missing her sister, as well as wishing that she'd seen a doctor sooner.

Thanks for a great Share, Susan.
