You need to read this article. It's published in today's New Haven Register, and about 300 other newspapers. It's written by Chris Geiger, a Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor, in celebration (there's that word again) of World Cancer Day, which is today.
Geiger is trying to set a world record for “The most published feature newspaper article in one day — by the same author," and spread some awareness by doing so.
I'm not usually one to pass up on an opportunity to comment, but Geiger does a really nice job on his own. As if you weren't already aware enough, just by reading Lympho Bob, it's always good to hear more.
