The photo of the handsome man over there is one of my oldest and best friends, Peter Salzano. I met Peter millions of years ago and together we've braved dating, divorce, birth, death of loved ones, marriage and illness. He spoke at my wedding and I toasted him at his (to the extraordinary Doug). In May 2003, Doug called me to tell me that Peter had been diagnosed with a brain tumor, a stage four Glioblastomia. But Peter smashed the odds and here he is five years later. He used yoga, visualization and a whole lot of silliness and love. Though he has to get MRIs more times than he would care to, he's tumor free now--and only 2% of Stage FourBrain tumor patients make this milestone. And even better, he and Doug started The Salzano-Smith Foundation for Brain Tumor Research in 2004. He's raised over 50,000 and the next one is coming up May 8th. For details, or just to say hi to a magnificent human being, email Peter at Psal4444@aol.com.
And if you do write him, please nag him to write his book! And give him huge hug for me because I adore him.
