Success Treks- MSKCC “Bridges”

Communties can now be created electronically to share both burdens and successes.   Blogs, newsletters, websites.

“Bridges” is the quarterly newsletter of Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s Cancer Center in New York for cancer survivors and their families.  It’s a forum to tell personal stories, find an instant support group, learn about new treatments and hear from experts- a must read for anyone who has survived cancer or knows someone who has.  Eileen Gould created this wonderful publication in the summer of 2008.  She is a model of personal triumph over a lifetime of  challenges.

Duane Bailey-Castro was her inspiration for the name “Bridges“.  Duane did a series of photographs of bridges in NYC while recovering from his second stem cell transplant at MSKCC.  He wanted to be outside with a project, but not near other humans for fear of germs.  Eileen calls him one of the most amazing people she’s ever met.

Jack read my post on the air on CNN November 18 2009. Question: Would You Vote for Obama again a year later?  I said something like, “Hillary is looking better and better.  Hillary-Barack 2012”. Today he asks whether Hillary should challenge Barack in 2012.  I’m thinking that they should swap jobs.  She’d be a stronger leader and he’d be great as Secretary of State.  You betcha!
