News that touches even the heart of a bastard

I have very few soft spots (maybe some patches where I've been hit more often than others), but the story of Cameron Underwood touched a nerve. At about the same time as one of my best friends found out he had leukemia, and I changed a large amount of my life to be a good friend and spend as much time in Philadelphia as possible helping him out, I followed the story of Cameron's recovery from a brain tumor, his return to school and to NC State at the same time as learning a lot about leukemia, hospitals, patience and treatments. It's rough to be sitting in the bone marrow word in Philadelphia and read the end of Cameron's story.
Tough break for someone who by all accounts was a decent, hardworking guy.
