goodbye, mike.

When I started BRICKS for Young Adults I was really concerned about interacting so closely with young adult cancer patients. After losing my husband to the disease I was scared to get close to people who I also might lose. I realized pretty quickly that this was a risk worth taking, and one that I needed to take.

A few days ago I learned that Pittsburgh lost another young adult to his illness, at just 33 years old. Although I barely knew him (we had only exchanged a few emails in the last year primarily about BRICKS and the booklet) many of my friends were also friends with him, and it broke my heart to know that so many of them had to deal with this again. Thinking about his wife and knowing what she is going through pains me.

I dont have anything profound to say, other than I am deeply saddened by this loss, and wish much peace for Mike's family and friends. You are all in my thoughts.
