Today's card is for my brother in law and sister in law's anniversary.  They are going though some rough times and I thought a humorous card would put a smile on their faces.  He found out 2 months ago his cancer returned.  He finished radiation last week and should start chemo in the next couple weeks.  His prognosis looks good, but it is still scary!
