Lately, I’ve been taking Uber and Lyft to the airport for my work travel. It gives me 40 free minutes to relax, work or have random conversations with the drivers. One recent chat with a Lyft driver reminded me that loaning family money can cause more harm than good.
According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1 million people in the United States get cancer each year. Globally, that number rises to around 15 million people.
As sad as those statistics are, they are just that … only statistics. Until cancer effects you, your family or someone close to you, you don’t realize the seriousness of the disease. At least that was the case with me.
