    [FONT=&quot]Dear All: PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know - even to those you don't know! It is the request of a special girl who will soon leave this world due to cancer. This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will. She'll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own. By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her family a little hope, because with every name that this is sent to, The American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name to her treatment and recovery plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we can at least send it to 5 or 6. It's not even your money, just your time! [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]PLEASE PASS ON AS A LAST REQUEST. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Dr. Dennis Shields, Professor [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Department of Developmental and Molecular Biology[/FONT]

    It was sarcasm. My bad it needed a smiley.

    But really I don't like incomplete to-do lists. But I've got a to-do list of places I want to visit. Doesn't have to be all bad. Honestly if you told me I was going to die in a week I'd spend it at home tying up loose ends and making sure my family was taken care of. Traveling and making new experiences is great if you've got the time to grow as a person and really live your life with that new sense of character.

    That "living life to the fullest" nonsense is a different can of worms.
