Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma in the news

A powerful story about students living after cancer in The University Daily Kansan, including Jessica Roark, who was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma in her tear duct:

Living In Remission http://www.kansan.com/stories/2008/may/08/living_remission/?news , by Mary Sorrick.

Thank you, Jessica, for allowing your story to be told. And congratulations to all of the KU (and other college) cancer survivors for "keepin' on". You are proving that life is what matters.

Teri--good post. Having said that, though, I HATE it when kids and young adults get cancer. Just hate it.

Of course, I don't want anyone to have cancer, and comparing "my cancer is worse (or better, for that matter) than your cancer ...." is a silly game for small-minded people, but I guess I feel so bad when young people get cancer because I have sons in this age bracket, and I would find it unbearable if they were diagnosed.

Sorry. I realize I'm a bit off-topic here, but that was my reaction to the story.
