A Sports Journalist Faces His Own Mortality


We have had a lot of fun on here today and there is a lot on here that I think is entertaining. But it is time to be serious for a moment and point readers to a a wonderful article by long-time MSNBC sports columnist Mike Celizic. Celizic was diagnosed with Cancer a few years back and since then has been fighting the disease and documenting his struggle on He recently received news that he was dying and he chose to not fight the disease any more and to skip chemotherapy treatements. He recounts his decisionmaking process in the article and writes about what it is like to literally face a death sentence.
