Miles' blog: a teen with cancer shares his journey

A teen named Miles who lives in suburban Detroit has a rare form of cancer that has caused him to leave high school. To keep in touch with his teen friends, he began a blog.

The medical news is not good: doctors agree that he's terminal and at best has a few years left.

However the reports on the blogging front are much better. Miles' blog has touched many readers with his daily thoughts and ponderings. It's been a way for him to stay in touch with peers and meet new friends from all over the world. And it's been a way for others to learn the lessons he's sharing from his experiences. And he's scheduled to graduate from high school in June.
