This is a recent blog post about how Roger Ebert has come to terms with his changes in appearance. Ebert's blog is generally really good and this post in particular I think some of us will be able to relate to. For me, it puts into perspective the merely cosmetic changes I've had to start coming to terms with with my appearance.

I love Ebert's blog. He's an eloquent writer and always has something insightful to say. Though I still have a slight quibble with his selection of Synecdoche as the best film of the noughties...

Thank you, Shrimpy, for posting this and putting things in perspective. I cannot even imagine the horror that Rober Ebert has being going through. And he handles it with such stoicism and aplomb. Ironically, I was misdiagnosed with salivary gland cancer back in 2005. It was a very scary time that turned out well (just walked away with a small scar under my chin).
