Cancer is one of the major causes of death around the world and so many of us have been affected by it in one way or another. For me it was my best friend Riccardo De Angelis who passed away on the 7th of March 2007. His passing was something that shocked and caught me off guard because he had been fighting his form of cancer for a while and everyone including his doctors thought he was on the way to recovery. He took a turn for the worse and then one afternoon when I was home for lunch I got a txt message from a friend telling me that he had passed away. The news left me numb. I had known Riccardo since I was 6 years old and even though it has been a year since his passing I still can’t believe he is gone. But, I am glad that I had the pleasure of having him as a friend and sharing so much of our lives together.
