"Ironically, after what seemed like a full recovery, my husband was diagnosed with a second kind of blood cancer. Here you are, being chosen as Honorary Caregiver for Relay for Life for raising so much money, and your husband’s almost completely healed — and then he does a …

She thinks that the blog is like her life. She’ll sit in front of a computer all day.” Initially, June said she wasn’t too keen on the idea of being active on the Internet. “I…
