As the father of two children who died in the womb, in addition to my two living children, I know more than a little bit about what it feels like to lose a child. Still, I can not fathom how my friend Andrea felt last December 29th.

And on a separate but equally important note, may I direct you to another charitable endeavor?
One week after the March for Babies, Revlon will be hosting its annual Run/Walk for Women, whose goal is to find a cure for women’s cancers. My high school friend Candi will be participating in New York City with her sister Dana, for the 14th year in a row.
Unfortunately, women’s cancers are something I have more than a passing knowledge of. Having lost a great aunt to breast cancer, I know firsthand how that particular disease can keep striking at its victim, like a venomous serpent that refuses to leave until the victim succumbs. And because I work in the field of disability claims, I know secondhand that breast cancer in particular (and other female-specific cancers in general) are more serious than most people realize.
These maladies can not only end lives, but tear asunder the lives of the loved ones who remain. If you wish to contribute to the research for a cure, you may do so at Candi and Dana’s link on Revlon’s page, by going here.
Your generosity will be appreciated.
