CALIFORNIA - Late Saturday night, I received an amazing note from a friend I've not seen in quite some time. It was simple, elegant and uplifting - an exact replication of my friend. It said: 

"I wanted to share this quote with you. It reminds me so much of you and all the other survivors I've met."

Here is the quote he liked, and I wanted to just pass it on to you. I've chosen my friend and fellow patient Devon for this blog post. Beauty, indeed. 

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
