I used to hang out at Janice’s house as a co-op. She was an active astronaut at that time and one of my closest friends was renting a room from her. You can, thus, only imagine the shock with which I took the news of her passing Tuesday overnight, losing her battle to cancer at the young age of 55.
That’s two people we have lost to cancer this week, just mere days after I posted about funding cancer research. I doubt I need to be more clear.
Here’s to fighting the fight. May you rest in peace, Janice. You will be missed.
