      I just had to butt in and say what an inspiring response you gave to Monica — and the rest of us. You're so right — Life IS terminal. And maybe a cancer diagnosis is not so much a death sentence as a wake-up call to kick ourselves in the pants and get the most out of life while we can. There's a Newfie expression we use with the same sentiment, but not as eloquently expressed — "None of us are gettin' outta here alive." Thanks for such a positive spin on things.
