"Wait 'til they hear about this on CaringBridge!"
I can relate to this video by 21-year-old Woody Roseland of Colorado. Here's his website with more background on his personal story, and his creative work as a podcaster, vlogger, public speaker, and his title of "Denver's best looking amputee."
If you or a loved one are going through chemotherapy right now (I am, it sucks)— you will find many familiar chords in this video. And by chord, I mean, among other things, the incessant beeping of that fucking drip machine that delivers the healing poison that makes you puke and kills tumors.
Woody, if you're reading: IV fist bump, man. Solidarity and strength, and best wishes to you. You're really awesome. Also, we currently have matching hairdos.
