On Saturday, July 12, a young lady stood in defiance as she held a parking spot for her friend. She challenged the driver, who was trying to park, to run her over. He eventually left.

It’s estimated that approximately 14 million Americans alive today have had cancer. Some are cancer-free; some are still fighting it. This year, they will be joined by another 1.6 million persons who will receive that fearful diagnosis. The grim news, of course, is that the ranks of cancer patients are also trimmed each year by death: More than 585,000 annually, a rate second only to heart disease nationally (but first in San Diego).
