Cathy Forsythe, sister of Chris Muir, who writes Day By Day, died Friday.
Cathy had battled cancer for some years. And bloggers helped promote her battle against cancer. Cathy had her own blog, in fact.
Many of us have been touched by cancer. Whether it's a friend or a family member who suffered, or whether some of us have battled the disease ourselves, most of us have been touched in some way.
But many of us have been touched in a different way.
Many of us have known survivors. And cancer survivors are some of the strongest, most inspiring people you could ever meet.
Sometimes, people survive for a while before finally succumbing. Others beat the disease and it never returns.
But, quite often, those that have fought cancer manage to be a source of strength for others.
Cathy is one of those who battled the disease and managed to use the Internet, radio, newspapers, and other media to bring attention to the fight.
In that way, Cathy fought not just for herself, but for others.
Cathy's fight is over.
But the battle continues.
