Nana

Jen

I am in awe of my friend Jen Linn who so bravely battled her rare cancer and forged the way and inspired so many others with rare cancers to never give up! She founded Cycle For Survival [...]

Some individuals leave a mark on society.  They live their lives determined to make this world a better place.  My friend Sue was one of these people.  I met Sue when we were just starting high [...]

Betty

I loved my Grandmother. We were so close. When she died I felt lost. I was heartbroken. Friends suggested a journal. They told me to write about her...to keep her memory alive. So I did.  This [...]
