What a Week–TYMDWB in Print and in the State House

20 Mar

I thought the most exciting time for TYMDWB would be when we released it, but this has been a pretty incredible week.

First, our good friend Dan Trittschuh, who was actually with me the day I was diagnosed with NHL, wrote a column about our shared experience in Suburban News Publications, one of our local weeklies. It was an amazing column–bringing me so clearly back to that time and helping me remember how much I value our friendship.

And then I open the Friday mail and discover a proclamation from our Ohio State Rep. John Patrick Carney (22nd district) who authored a State House honor for TYMDWB. I was absolutely speechless. What an amazing thing to have happen, and I am so grateful to Rep. Carney for supporting our book and efforts to help those with cancer.

Some local Columbus orders for the book came in this week, which I think may have been spurred by Dan’s column. As grateful as I am for those purchases, I also know they may mean another family is facing cancer. So to all those who order I say, “Thank you, and we are here for you.”
