I only wrote a blog


You hear the stories about how people who get through cancer, or other life changing events, do something to give back - to give their life more value. I have a blog. This gentleman, on the other hand, has set an example for all of us.

I wrote a blog which started as my way of communicating about my wonderful cancer roller coaster. Now I hope it helps other people by showing their is life after cancer but allows me to continue to offer my opinion on all sorts of things. But I am an underachiever in comparison.

Mr. Huntsman has created a cancer institute and has donated more than one billion (that's right a 'b' not an 'm') to help others. He had has cancer four times - I am happy not to compete with that number - and therefore has a special insight into what its like to go through diagnosis and treatment. We should all try to be like him and help others as much as we can.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing! I loved his line at the end, that he would like to end all cancers and turn the cancer center into a five-star hotel. Props to this man. And what a great idea to have "pretty views" in the chemo and patient rooms!
