Hahaaha Hihihihi Hohoho..

Finding the humor in life's challenges, and particularly as it relates to the chronic illness, is what helps us to get through the day, reminds us of life's absurdities, and provides relief from the stress and strain of our treatments.

If you have been feeling sad or low, perhaps it is time to search for the humor in your life. In fact, the secret to a happy, joyful life is as simple as A, B, C ?
