Let's do a rundown:
- My brother is cancer-free yet had to have a surgery that forever negatively impacted his life.
- My aunt was dead within a month of her diagnosis this past September.
- My grandmother presently has cancer.
- Learned last week that a dear friend also has cancer. In her lifetime she has lost a baby, had another son get cancer, only to lose that son to murder. Her son was one of my dearest friends and I can't imagine the grief she has endured in her lifetime.
