Christopher Hitchens – Topic of Cancer

I’m working on a post, which will be up soon.  In the meantime, read this.  Vanity Fair contributing editor, world-renowned author and atheist Christopher Hitchens discovered his body was riddled with cancer last summer.  His writing is so eloquent it makes me ache.  My Dad is in the late stages of metastatic colon cancer, so I read this piece with that in mind.

About Chris DeVinney

Me in a nutshell: mom, writer, former lobbyist, wife, volunteer, lover of music and art, massive fan of traveling, and something of a smart ass. A typical INTJ, I quietly observe anyone and anything that comes into my orbit, squirreling away material for future essays. These days I spend my time writing about whatever interests me (both professionally and personally) and trying to strike the balance between taking care of kids/family/house/pets and me. Occasionally I nail it, hang on to it briefly, and then scramble back toward the center when the tipping starts again. I know, it’s a common story.

    >Well put. I talked to Dad the other day…about a week ago. It was so nice just to sit and talk with him…to listen to him just talk about small things that were important to him.
