Life is unfair sometimes.  I am an adult and I get that concept.  What I don’t understand is why my friend Mishi is being dealt such a crap hand by the universe right now.   Her beautiful 2-year-old daughter, Stella has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.  She is going to die and it will be sooner rather than later.
I met Mishi years ago (and no I don’t remember how many) in a band called Argonotes.  We played at football games and had a lot of fun.  Mishi met and fell in love with a wonderful woman named Aimee.  They decided to have children.  They were blessed with a beautiful little girl who they named Stella Joy.  And yet she is dying.  It’s been less than 2 months since they got the devastating news that Stella Joy is not long for this world.  I don’t even want to think about whether I could show the kind of strength that they are displaying on a daily basis.  From the beginning their priorities have been to ensure that Stella has a fabulous summer and cram as much life into the time she has left.  I am truly in awe of these two fabulous people.

You can read their whole story here (note: you may want a box of kleenex handy)
