									Cancer Strikes When You Don't Expect It

I have an old friend that I only know through the Internet. I'm not sure how we met. It was a long time
ago. It was probably through a mailing list or some early Internet message board. We have a lot of
similar interests so over the years we have kept in touch. We do not talk often, but every once in a while
we send each other emails to see what is going on or to discuss something of mutual interest.

I'm used to not hearing from this friend for weeks at a time, so I was not concerned that he had not
responded to my emails for almost a month. I assumed that he was just busy with work or life and
would get back to me when he had a chance. As it turns out, I was partially right. He was busy, but not
with what I expected.

He sent me a message a couple of days ago. His wife has a brain tumor and he has been busy with her
treatments and caring for their children. Unfortunately, the doctors do not have much hope for her
recovery.

My first thoughts were sadness for my friend, of course. Later though, I thought about how quickly our
lives could end and how we never know when our time will come. That's why we need to have estate
plans before we think we will need them.
