Our clan has been particularly affected by Cancer. In addition
to the two ladies above, cancer also claimed my father, Bruce
P. Griffith, and my wife's Uncle, Richard Schneider.
Esta survived three cancers in her lifetime.
As well as other good friends and family claimed by this scourge.
Having had the experience of having both of my parents parents
in hospice at home, I have come to the conclusion that
as it kills the person first, then the body.
Please support Cancer research and your local hospice organization.
