Susan, I just read the e-mail about your son, Zach and wanted you to know thta you are in my thoughts and prayers. Bunk has successfully battled throat cancer and has been cancer free for over a year. I, myself, just finished radiation for breast cancer and am feeling fine! It is quite a journey but one now filled with so much hope. Love to you and yours, Susie Margraf

  Hello everyone -

  Have been looking forward to our 45th with camera in hand!

  Yet, recently, reality has come to the forefront . . . after 4 weeks of tests at Sloan-Kettering, my younger son, Zach, has been diagnosed with cancer . . . testicular. The prognosis is great, yet he must undergo weeks of chemo. He is such an inspiration, at 27: going to work everyday, shooting on the weekends: sporting clays, et al - as he puts it, with every clay pigeon I kill ( a dead shot and award winner), I also kill this cancer. And he is also socializing. Yes, scared, but going forward with knowledge and head held high.

  By virtue of Sloan and many questions asked, he knows what is ahead . . . hair loss, nausea, fatigue . . .
  the great thing is that he has been with his dad, Stewart, every step of the way! Such a bonding! And he has been communicating with me and his brother, Ben.

  I have been doing research, so I also knows what is ahead. His chemo starts the weekend of reunion - by virtue of unknown reactions, I must remain here for him. Yes, we are all optimistic. Am now wearing a Livestrong for him, as are my entire family and friends, for Zach has the same kind of cancer that Lance Armstrong had, yet it has not traveled to the brain . . . the yellow bracelet is encouragement for me.

  Take lots of pics, ladies, and send them to me . . . yes, shall be in next K-O News!

  Love to you all - Happy 45th - and remember the 60 is the new 50!
