Senator Edward Kennedy has been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor(glioma) in the left parietal lobe of his brain. Treatment can consist of a combo of radiation and chemo but no treatment course has been set for him yet.
I feel like I just got hit with a sucker punch.
I grew up with the Kennedys. John F. Kennedy was the first President that I was cognizant of as a child. My mom and I watched the birth of his kids, what Jackie was wearing and was glued in front of the TV when his assassination was reported. We cried while we watched his funeral and John-John saluting the casket. His brother, Robert, was murdered shortly after my mother died. I watched Jackie afterwards, watched her kids grow up, the kids marry and have their kids and Jackie's battle with cancer. I cried when John and his wife were killed in the plane wreck.
I've been to Arlington and prayed at their graves.
And now this.
I don't care about political affiliations or his past because we all have one--a man has a malignant brain tumor. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers if you would.
