Marcia Reynolds, Finance Assistant of Cancer Services, offers her guidance on feeling alive and taking advantage of all the experiences life has to offer!

“A friend recently told me this joke: A husband said to his wife, ‘Honey, if I’m ever in a vegetative state, really just not aware of anything or anyone around me, just pull the plug.’ So, his wife went over and turned off the T.V.

While funny, this joke really hits home. In fact, I just had this conversation with my son who is leaving for college this fall. I told him he will be in an environment where he will have opportunities to experience so many new and different things. But I feared that too often he may choose to stay in his dorm room and take it easy, or play his video games! I wanted to make sure that he lived life rather than just living. With all of today’s technology, it is so easy to forget that getting up and out is what makes us feel alive.” ~ Marcia Reynolds, Finance Assistance
