The day my brother Bill called last month to tell me he has (bad) cancer ranks as the worst day of my life so far. To say that my entire family is heartbroken and terrified would put understatement to shame. But while we've been through a lot in recent years, we do not plan to take this lying down. After a quick surprise visit to see him over Fourth of July weekend, I'm heading back down to Washington tomorrow to join the entire family -- en route now from Phoenix -- to be by Bill's side as he begins his fight. As is always his style, he's taking the news more rationally and maturely than the rest of us put together. Can't even begin to stress how lucky I am to have Bill as my big brother, wherever we go from here. xo
Bill went public with his battle today and is more my hero than even before.
