Well, sorry for the lack of blog entries lately. I have been down and out with some type of flu. I had to cancel three trips this week and I can’t remember the last time I had a fever. Anyway, I am on the mend and heading back in to the office for a few hours today. I can’t wait. I know that sounds strange but I love working. I can’t stand to be out of the office. Away from my colleagues. We have so much to do that I can’t stand missing a day.
I have been reading a lot and watching movies as well. Just read a great piece in Newsweek by Jamie Reno. Jamie is a cancer survivor and he interviewed Senator Arlen Specter about his new book detailing his own cancer experience. Jamie is a great guy who is doing so much for the cancer community. Check the article out.
Other than reading and watching movies I have been preparing for our LAF Board of Directors meeting next Monday and trying to get back to 100%. Sometimes it takes an illness to remind us of how fortunate we are.
As an aside, Lance was on Capitol Hill today meeting with a few Senators and on Friday he will give the keynote speech at a luncheon for the Intercultural Cancer Council’s meeting. I am frustrated not to be there as there are few, if any, meetings that are more inspiring and fulfilling. The energy of the graduate students and leaders of organizations from across the country is contagious. Many of my colleagues will be there and Lance is excited to participate.
More in the coming weeks. We have too much going on to be sick. LIVESTRONG Day is right around the corner and we are getting closer to our goal for having more than 500 events around the country.
