Dear Holy Blossom Family,
I want to share with you that I am going through a significant personal medical challenge, as after suffering through a very difficult last few months, I now have a diagnosis, that of an advanced form of lung cancer.
I have already had an outpouring of affection from those who have heard what I am going through; it is much appreciated. However, I need to focus on getting better and am not capable of responding to a large number of emails and calls. Rather, I would be grateful if those of you who wish to express your words of encouragement do so in the comment section below. You can leave your greetings there and I will make a point of visiting daily and deriving the strength that I need from them.
I am optimistic and determined to fight this, just like any other challenge that I have ever faced and hope to see you all very soon.
