Woody Roseland, on life with cancer: "You Are Here" (video)

[Video Link] You may remember a previous Boing Boing post about Woody Roseland—specifically, about his spectacular "Shit Cancer Patients Say" video.

Man. I loved that video, and I love Woody. I've followed him on Twitter throughout my own cancer treatment. He inspires me and makes me laugh.

Here's a video of Woody speaking at TEDxMileHigh about his life with cancer.

So much of what he says rings true for me, too:

"When cancer stares you in the face, you learn who you are."

Shit cancer patients say

"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.
