Making Comedy out of Chemo

The files you save on your computer or memory cards are often forgotten and lost in a digital junk drawer.  I recently came across a few SD cards in my unpacking, and was delighted at most of the things I’d found.  There were vacation photos from when The Max and I went to New Orleans last spring and other moments I was glad to have back.  I also recovered a video of my friend Tim, who passed away last month.

We’d always spend time taking pictures and videos and writing things together we planned on making into blogs, books, screenplays, etc. almost all of which never made it past the first draft.  When he was diagnosed with melanoma, his first treatment was taking experimental medication and he wanted to showcase it on the internet.  I am not sure why we never ended up posting this video, but I am going to go ahead and do it now.

Miss you tg.

    Aaaaaaaaand…that made me cry. I lost a very dear cousin to brain cancer about ten years ago, and this sure hit hard.

    It’s really great to see that your friend had a strong spirit, which only makes it hurt more that he lost the fight.

    Thanks for sharing, that changed my day.

    So glad you were able to find that. He seemed like a real character. Reminds me so much of my friend Laura. She had a similar sense of humor and made the same kind of jokes about chemo and the dialysis she was doing and everything. Watching this just makes me miss her more but I’m really glad you posted it. She had this really funny, high pitched, cackling laugh and a wicked, dark sense of humor. I’d do anything to hear that laugh again.
