The word strikes dread into our very souls as nothing has, since the spread of the Black death. Almost no one has been unaffected by this vile disease, and everyone I know either has had a relative who contracted it, or known someone who has.
I am, therefore, dedicating this book to those who I have lost, both family and friends, and particularly to my mother and my best friend, both taken before their time, both remembered for their courage, guidance, love, and inspiration.
Mrs. Freda G. Schrecengost
Mr. David Guthrie
I would also, in a roundabout way, dedicate it to all who have suffered in cancer’s cruel grip.
You see, it’s time we brought an end to all of this, and kill this scourge of the earth, once and for all. So, I am pledging 25% of my royalties for the sale of this book to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
I chose St. Jude for several reasons:
1. It was started in 1962 by one of the best entertainers of all time, Mr. Danny Thomas.
2. Its focus is on children.
3. No family pays the hospital one thin dime for any treatments their child has received.
4. It receives very high marks in regards to using any and all donations in the manner in which they were intended.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is a cause I feel proud to support.
