I didn't realize that Benjamin Griffiths has been fighting cancer. Here is an interview on KUOW.

What an ordeal for such a young man to face. He is blessed to have Pacitti and Lallone to stand by him through his diagnosis and chemo.

Thanks so much for sharing this. I knew that he had been sick. He is a really wonderful young man - danced with my daughter in another company. I am glad that he has such supportive friends in addition to his family. We pray all goes well for him.

I heard this in the car this morning (where all the really quality listening time seems to happen) and wince to admit one of the first things I thought was "so that's why everyone's cut their hair so short."

I'm so glad that he's willing to discuss his health in a public forum like this. As well as celebrating his own successes against this disease, he raises the subject in the general population, encouraging people to get tested and be aware of their own bodies.
