This is dedicated to my dear, dear friend, Inuko. Yes, she is a SDE client, and yes, she has two amazing SDs named Gadget and Orianna – but she is more than that. Knowing her – and she is only 19 years old – has impacted the way I think about life and cancer and sickness and death. The spirit of the man who is in the speech below, who died the other day, reminds me of Inuko’s spirit. Cancer, no matter how bad it has become, does not define her life. She defines her life – and that is living each day to the fullest, not dwelling on the past or worrying about the future – but LIVING – and being grateful for every wonderful thing she has in her life. We love you, Inuko.
