There are many famous people who died of Cancer and Cancer-related illnesses. Here is a link to famous people who died of smoking related cancers. It is quite scary and shocking to see so many talented people taken from us by Cigarettes and Cancer. Most were young, all had given alot to the world. It shows Cancer is no respecter of who you are or what you do. Cancer kills - full stop. Celebrities who Died of Cancer

This is a wonderful poem about a wonderful thing - HOPE.

Hope by Friedrich von Schiller
We speak with the lip, and we dream in the soul,
Of some better and fairer day;
And our days, the meanwhile, to that golden goal
Are gliding and sliding away.
Now the world becomes old, now again it is young,
But "The better" 's forever the word on the tongue.

At the threshold of life hope leads us in--
Hope plays round the mirthful boy;
Though the best of its charms may with youth begin,
Yet for age it reserves its toy.
