In this era of information overload, we are beseiged from all sides by “experts” and their “studies” on what is good for us and what is harmful to us. There are times, though, when personal experience and word of mouth are the best sources of help. These two posts fit that description.
The first is from Elden the Fat Cyclist, a celebrity amongst the biking community for his candid and emotional posts about his wife’s lost battle with metastatic breast cancer. He took it personal, to the point where he and his “Team Fatty” teams raised for $626,000 for cancer research. This particular post (and the subsequent comments from his readers) will give you ideas on how to help a loved one who’s starting or continuing cancer treatments.
The second is from a paramedic who took to cycling to save his own life after years of obesity. Elden advised him to write a post on what will happen when you have to call 9-1-1.
Please spread the word and thanks.
