With all that's going on right now, it's so good to hear something positive.

Sunday is National Cancer Survivors Day. My wife, Deneen, is a 13-year survivor.

I know exactly how long it's been, because we found out after she gave birth to our twins. As legendary Philadelphia sportscaster Gary Pappa, who unfortunately lost his battle with prostate cancer, once told me: "She gave them life and they gave it right back to her"

So for Deneen and all cancer survivors, Salute! Here's to a list of survivors that, God willing, never stops growing.

I asked the name of you or someone you know that has survived cancer. Here are those that I received so far, Here's to you, heroes every one of you!
