Way back in September of 2008, I wrote this short post on our brand new Help With Cancer.org site:

With the the economy and stock market crashing down around us, it is important to take time to appreciate the little things that make life worth living. My wife recently hung a large, framed poster of a kitten above our refrigerator in the kitchen.

Under the photo, Ellis Felker writes: I once asked a four year old what the secret to life was. “Feed the kitties” she said. “Feed the Kitties.”

Healthy or sick, young or old, rich or not so rich, we all have so much to be thankful for. Be kind to your friends and families, even if we are hurting, upset or in pain.

Don’t forget to feed the kitties!

Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat

Short, sweet and to the point.  Life seemed so much simpler then.  My induction therapy had just succeeded pushing my myeloma down and out.  I was in CR–and would remain that way for two more years–using relatively low doses of Revlimid without dexamethasone.

Oh my God!  I’m nostalgic about using ongoing chemotherapy for incurable cancer.  Guess those were the good old days!

Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
