Stupid Cancer
July 3, 2009

I met Matthew when I was on the internet searching for information about cancer. I didn't have cancer, my sister did. I was looking for information and trying to find ways to fundraise for an event I was supposed to take part in. I found a website with piano music from a cancer survivor named, Matthew Zachary. I listened to a few examples and ordered a copy. I listened to this CD many many times and then ordered another. My sister was no longer with us and she spent a courageous 14 months battling breast cancer and died at the age of 48. She would be 52 today if cancer had not taken her life. Those CD's made the grieving a bit easier and when I listened to those I found a sort of peaceful serenity in dealing with her loss. I wished I had found this earlier and shared it with her. I ordered a few CD's for a nursing home, rehabilitation center I worked in, in hopes that cancer victims and families could find that same peace. I have many friends and relatives who are touched with this nasty thing called cancer and I have kept up with Matthew ever since that first CD. He is an awesome person and I am extremely grateful that fate brought me to his website that day. He tirelessly fights this STUPID Cancer as well as being a survivor himself. He is one of my heros and thank God for sending him to help others. He is an angel.
