    Here’s a meme we can really get behind. When Drew Olanoff was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of cancer that affects the body’s lymphatic system, he was determined not to let it beat him. What’s the best way for a self-affirmed geek to stay positive? Start a meme!

    Today people around the world began ‘Blaming Drew’s cancer’ for everything from the state of the economy to the fact they put spoiled milk in their coffee. If you want to join in start a tweet with “I #BlameDrewsCancer for…” All the tweets are being displayed at blamedrewscancer.com.
