As some of you know, I have two Facebook accounts. Let me just say that the reasons are related to religion and privacy*. One is dedicated to my Pagan focus and Pagan-accepting friends, and the other is for everyone else! I received a friend request on my “real” account this evening from someone I went to high school with. The name was familiar but she was not someone I associated much with and so her face had faded from my immediate recollection. I looked at her photos and recognized the face but it was different looking – thinner and coifed by a bandanna or scarf. All her photos were. I looked at her info – links, wall posts – and confirmed that someone I graduated with has cancer. I don’t know where she is in her treatments at the moment… but she is the first I know of from my graduating class. It’s sobering to say the least. Things like this truly put life into sharp perspective.
* I should blog about this sometime…

One thought on “”
:(I think I know who you're talking about because I saw a classmate's name on a bag at Relay for Life and was able to ask a mutual friend about her. She was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma which is a cancer that tends to hit younger people. I know a teenager who had it, too, and is in remission. Fortunately it seems like one of the more treatable forms and has a high survival rate.. But realizing someone from our high school days was diagnosed is really sad and startling to say the least.
