And now for something completely serious.
On December 9, 1993 my mother lost her battle with cancer. She was originally diagnosed with breast cancer in August of 1991 and after six months of chemotherapy and radiation we thought she had it beat. During the summer of 1993 the cancer came back. She fought the best she could but six months later we lost her. I was seventeen at the time and can honestly say that her death was one of the hardest things I ever had to face and even though I have now lived more years without her than with her in my life I still miss Mom everyday.
Because of how Mom died I am sensitive to those that have either fought cancer or had a relatives or friends fight the disease so when the opportunity to be part of a fundraiser to support the Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta I had to to take it. Here’s the press release for the DCTC Podcasts Cancer Research Fundraiser.

I was very honored that Rebecca asked me to be part of this fundraiser. I don’t do this often but if you can listen in to the marathon that would be great but it would be even better if you could make a donation. I don’t support causes often but this one is really close to my heart. Be sure to tune in all day Saturday but especially from six o’clock to nine o’clock Eastern Standard Time to listen Rebecca and I talk about Supergirl. It’s going to be entertaining and it going to be for a good cause. It’s the best of both worlds.
See you on Saturday!
