But a 10-yo child with cancer?
Read it. Rejoice with them. Cry, celebrate, hope, persevere, wonder.

Their blog (which I stumbled across quite by accident this morning) simply breaks my heart.
"I'm gonna kick cancer's butt!"
"Jordan’s Journey is a BLOG that follows the life of Jordan Vincent, a child battling a rare brain tumor. The story is told by her father, a writer. When she was first diagnosed with cancer, he started writing emails to a handful of friends with updates on her progress. The updates often contained emotional observations about how Jordan’s Journey affected the whole family. As her visits in and out of hospitals increased, the family was encouraged by friends to post these updates on this blog so that more people could follow her story.
Jordan Marin Vincent began her battle with cancer in January, 2003. She was four years old. She suffers from slow-progressing (but frustratingly persistent) brain tumors. No one is more suited for the battle. People who know Jordan are captivated (and sometimes challenged) by her unique mix of charm and perseverance. She’s not able to keep a journal by herself. The family hopes that one day this BLOG will be her only memory of cancer."
