At 22 years old, on September 2, 2006, Jon Lester's team, the Boston Red Sox had to announce that he had a rare form of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Yesterday, Jon Lester threw a no-hitter. Today, he took a congratulatory call live on ESPN from testicular cancer survivor Lance Armstrong. What does tomorrow hold? We all hope it includes cures for the hundreds of types of cancers. Until then, if you have, or know someone with cancer, may I recommend this blog: Rituals of Healing.
Congratulations to all cancer survivors. May there be many, many more survivors.
