    My Friends Are Dying.

    I really thought this happened to people much older. I have now lost 5 friends to cancer in their 60ís. The latest was a black belt in excellent shape. Fell and his back pain wouldnít go away. He had stage 4 cancer and is dead 40 days later. Itís so depressing.

    Hugs, Terry...Im noticing more people my age in the obits. Not a good feeling. Losing a friend is tough, esp. if you've known them since childhood.

    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Over 40% of all cancer deaths are in the 50-69 year old age group. According to the statistics, it does look like the % in that age group has lowered since the 90s as people have survived longer. Still the % is pretty meaningless when it is friends and relatives.
