A tribute to my friend Earl, a man who died from breast cancer.
"Men suffer too

Dear Earl my good friend
You fought the battle to the end
You were a man with cancer of the breast
You fought hard and passed the test.

You were the best counselor there ever was
You did your job without a fuss
You provided many with a second chance
Yet none could change your circumstance.

Many said "But he's a man
How could he have cancer" they began
Still it was cancer that filled your breast
We all know you did your best.

You were a great friend and man
Defeating cancer is the plan.
