I was doing some sobering math problems this morning as I drank my orange juice and pretended that I was feeling better than I really was.
So, my marathon took me 5 hours and 10 minutes (about).
During that time, SIXTY TWO people died of a blood-related cancer.
124 were diagnosed in that same window of time.
At about every half mile (a little less) that I reached, someone died and two people were diagnosed. It's kind of hard to wrap your head around.....
That's too many. Way too many.
I'm on a quest to obliterate those numbers.
