DR. CUMMINGS: The wind beneath my wings

Last weekend at the Monroe County Relay for Life, my wife and I were mesmerized by the rich, powerful, baritone voice of Robert Ogletree, who looks and sings like a young Paul Robeson. He stood before the crowd of his fellow cancer survivors and belted out: “You Are The Wind Beneath My Wings.” All of us began to think of our own “wind,” our own life support, our own heroes. Anyone who survives life itself, let alone cancer, has somebody “holding up their wings.”
