A few years from now you will be writing this letter to yourself. There is so much in you life that is changing sometimes it is hard to grasp. You will be faced with many tough choices that only you can make. You want to be free and go away to school but a part of you needs to stay to be with family. One of the biggest challenges you will face is your closest friend being diagnosed with cancer. You will call him every day just to tell him you love him. However, every day is a battle to keep yourself together for him. I want you to know that no matter what happens it is going to be okay. Please do not take any time you have with loved ones for granted. Tell your family, and friends how much you love them every day.
