Some people hold that the number 7 has some magical powers

Most people in Continental Europe and Latin America write 7 with a line in the middle ("7"), sometimes with the top line crooked. The line through the middle is useful to clearly differentiate the character from the number one, as these can appear similar when written in certain styles of handwriting. This glyph is used in official handwriting rules for primary school in Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Poland and other Slavic countries,  as well as in France and Germany.  Oh yes, my allogeneic stem cell transplant donor was born and raised in Germany.

Some people hold that the number 7 has some magical powers.

The origin of my CANswerist trip

Extended cancer survival journeys like mine (now 8 years in duration) are becoming the rule rather than the exception.  No doubt in my mind that my April 2006 DX with NHL MCL was an unfortunate event that happened at the right time and in the right place.

Some might consider any DX for the "BIG C" as a life-ending experience, but thanks to the marvelous caregivers and advanced research hospitals we have today (and a healthy dose of divine intervention), the rates of mortality and morbidity for cancer today have drastically declined.

I know this to be true because I am one of those cases, a beneficiary of circumstances, plans, and a new medicine that goes well beyond diagnosis and brings the cure. The rest of the story is explained by this and other posts on this blog.

Key:  DX = diagnosis, NHL = non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, MCL = mantle cell lymphoma

July 4▶ Still one of the most important dates in history

According to WP*, July 4 is the 185th day of the year (186th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 180 days remaining until the end of the year. The Aphelion, the point in the year when the Earth is farthest from the Sun, occurs around this date. *WP = Wikipedia

Personally, the date has some other significance both globally and locally ...
