Today is a special day.
Today, Barry will be completing his last scheduled round of chemotherapy at the Chemo Day Care Centre at the Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto.
There is a ritual at the hospital - in that those patients completing their last treatment of chemotherapy ring the bell as they leave. And when it rings, the nurses and volunteers and other chemo patients pause for a moment and applaud.
Today, at about 2 p.m. EST, Barry will be ringing that bell.
And today, at that same time, hundreds of people from around the world will also be ringing bells, to celebrate this moment with Barry. They will also be ringing for family and friends that have been touched by cancer.
Above is the bell that I will be ringing. Maybe, if you are really quiet, you will hear the bells.
