  1. I found the third polaroid from the bottom over in Chicago taped to the side of a building (I believe it was a Walgreens on canal street)

    My close friend's little brother was diagnosed with leukemia a few months back, and though obviously the struggle is hard, he is taking it so well and has remained the same person he always was. He won't go one day without making someone else smile and he only refers to his disease as "the cancer". My friend told me he made an ash tray out of clay when he wasat Children's Memorial Hospital. He's a great kid, and though it breaks my heart to hear about going through chemotherapy and all of the other struggles that accompany leukemia, it gives me hope that he is willing to retain his great sense of humor and fight.
