During an impromptu question-and-answer session, Snow said he has become closer to God and his family because of the cancer. “I am actually enjoying everything more than I ever have,” he said. “God hasn’t promised us tomorrow, but he has promised us eternity.” Loans do a lot to stem poverty Natalie Portman says that for many of the world’s poorest women, a small loan can change their lives. The actress said on ABC’s “This Week” that she has met mothers younger than she is who had to work in poor conditions for low pay because that was the only job available to them. “And then they’re able to get a loan and start their own business out of their own house and be with their children,” Portman said. “It changes the whole system.” White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, who will soon begin chemotherapy to fight a cancer recurrence, told fellow alumni at Davidson College that he feels great and plans to return to work today. Snow, 51, has been on medical leave since announcing March 27 that a growth in his abdominal area was cancerous and had metastasized, or spread, to the liver. “No, it doesn’t mean I’m going to be gray, shriveled and in the fetal position,” he told about 600 alumni and family members at a 30-year reunion in Davidson, N.C., Saturday. “To my classmates who think I’m going to lose my great hair, forget about it.” Snow had his colon removed in 2005 and underwent six months of chemotherapy after being diagnosed with colon cancer. last_img read more
