      Sunday should be a day for each and every one of us to pick something that gives us joy, meaning, a break from all that is going on around us, and bask in our own light. We've been to H-E double hockey sticks and back and we deserve one day just to be ourselves. What might you do?

    I read a quote in an article today that is quite catchy and makes you think.

      I guess we can never truly know if all of the cancer is gone if there are microscopic cells left in us.

      Since 9/11, we have heard much about "sleeper cells." There is a theory, based on the behavior of cancer, that we may carry a sleeping cancer cell in our bodies, since, in a few cases, the exact same mutation will appear decades later. due to the utter complexity of our DNA, this likelihood seems extremely remote unless there is an inactive cancer cell somewhere, remaining dormant until activated by some unknown internal or external force.

      Sounds scary until one considers that the cell remains static while medical science constantly advances. Advantage: us.
