How our friend DJ Cohen handled his 50th chemotherapy treatment
When you tell a guy he's got stage 4 pancreatic cancer, you expect him to retreat into a world of fear, panic or depression. You expect him to look weak, tired or sick. You expect tears, sad looks or whispered conversations. Not this guy.
You may have heard us talk about DJ Cohen. He's become something of a hero around here. They told him he had three months to live. He said, "Not if I have anything to say about it." And he's not just an example for sick people; he's an example for all of us.
This is how we should be living our lives. Every day. Having a blast, beating the odds, running, singing, writing, laughing, creating, and just generally loving life. We've been showing you his "chemo costumes" the costumes he wears to brighten up the treatments, not just for him but for the chemo patients around him, too.
This week was treatment No. 50. We commemorated it and had him on the air with us. He continues to amaze us. And, as cliché as it sounds, inspire us too. And here's today's costume. Enjoy! He did!
