I just found out this evening that my cousin Kevin was just diagnosed with muco epidermal carcinoma in his mouth. This is a malignant tumor that will need to be surgically removed along with three glands in four to six weeks. Whatâ€™s frightening is that he is the same age as my sister (31 years old), and just a little younger than me.
Kevin and I hung out when I visited the United Kingdom just a few years ago. He introduced me to a couple of his friends, and he was nice enough to cart me around London and Croydon a few times. Heâ€™s a very down-to-earth guy and really accommodating. He is a hard worker and a good person. To say he doesnâ€™t deserve this is an understatement. But his spirits are up, and I hope to spend some time with him when I attend his brotherâ€™s wedding in Scotland this summer.
Tonightâ€™s blog is dedicated to Kevin, his family, and his friends.
