    I was 11 when my brother died of cancer.

    He was only 21 but I am glad that he was a role model to me after our dad past away. A month before he died he had his 21st birthday. I had a blast and it's like it was yesterday he was scolding me for not picking up my dirty clothes off the floor. I remember when I revived the...

    It Happened So Fast.

    At the time of his diagnosis he was 29 and in a band. He was living the rock star lifestyle. I lived 400 miles away and only saw him a handful of times during his 8 month battle with cancer. It happened so fast that I feel guilty that I wasnt there. I miss him so much.
