Welcome to my dad's cancer blog! I started this forum to keep our family and friends updated on dad's progress. I chose the title, Battling Biology, for two reasons. The first is that I think the definition of "battle" is fitting: to contend with full strength, vigor, skill, or resources (Merriam-Webster). The second is that whenever someone tells dad that it "isn't fair" for him to have cancer, especially a cancer that predominately affects smokers and heavy drinkers (which he has never been), he replies, "it's biology." That's dad, a scientist to the core. And a strong one, at that.
P.S. Feel free to post comments or questions on this blog, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
