Smart reaches out to Ringer's O'Connor after dad's cancer diagnosis
First and foremost, I'd like to take this opportunity to say: fuck cancer.
No polite language here, apologies, but it's taken too many people who were close to me, and too many close to the rest of us, too. But out of that loss, comes community -- community born of a common struggle against an unseen enemy, by those who refuse to let the disease define them, or open a gulf between themselves and the people and things they love.
I don't have much to add here except that for those of us stricken with the disease, and those of us supporting them, know that you are not alone. Ask for help; you have a global army at your disposal, and together, we will never give up the fight.
