Bear with me as I bring two separate ideas forward to make my point in this blog,

       The first idea doesn't have anything to do with any cancer, its an example of making plans to enjoy a good moment in life, involving a bottle of wine....

       The second idea comes from my career encouraging patients and their families during their cancer treatment,  to plan for a better day ahead.....

You may already see where this writing is going, so I hope that you do bear with the rest of the piece.....
