Such an ugly word. Such an ugly part of life.
I know five people that have been diagnosed with cancer this month. FIVE. In one month.
Before the first one was diagnosed I went to my doctor because something just wasn’t right. She sent me to have an ultrasound and then to see a specialist. The specialist ordered a biopsy that will be done in the morning.
I’ve had cancer before. I learned some things from it. I’m perfectly fine with going the rest of my life without learning anything else from cancer. If you want to keep me in your prayers, I’d appreciate it.
