The link below is to a website for another cancer survivor. Brian is a great guy I met on Walt's website who became my friend as well. Brian has survived stage IV throat cancer, his brother stage IV colon cancer, and his brother's 5 month old baby stage IV neuroblastoma. Brian and Scott's story really caught my eye and when I went to meet Walt, stage IV prostate cancer, in Alabama, I also met Scott and Brian and their families.
The reason I bring this here is that Brian, in his selfless nature, wears a blue wristband. He does so for our friendship! He also posts on his web site, for prostate cancer awareness. He has a picture of me, Walt, and him on the front of the site. The picture was taken by his cute little girl Nicole. I have linked the site below along with all the others from my friends in Alabama...

Some very wonderful people.
