wish in a bottle

I believe this was originally a bottle of heparin, a medication sometimes used to flush central lines for patients. In 1999 this woman started covering them with clay and handing them out for cancer patients to write down a wish and keep it inside.

My mom got them at a cancer fair. This bottle is going to Jon and Madelyn's teacher, who got some bad news last week.

bottle of hope

Again, I'm still very anti-cancer. Why aren't all the terrible people getting cancer? why do most evil dictators live to be 104 when decent people are dying of cancer?
