Lately the doom of cancer has been all around me.My very best friend, that I have known since I was 5, found out that her mom's breast cancer has returned and spread to her brain. A few years back she had found out that the cancer had spread to some of her organs. The recent news was not taken lightly, obviously, and now my friend is finding her family in a situation of choices to make concerning her mom's life. My friends mom is only in her 50's, a mother to 5 wonderful children, a grandmother to 4 beautiful little girls. I have know this woman practically my whole life.... and I am so angry that cancer now holds her life in it's hands.
About 2 months ago I also found out that another family friend found out that her breast cancer is back as well. And has traveled to her brain. She is a mother of one fabulous and kind daughter. If cancer takes her life this girl will be left alone.... and my heart breaks for her. I got to know Krista (the daughter), much better when she traveled with my husband and I and my siblings to New Zealand to visit family. She was a joy to have with us. I am angry at cancer for holding her Mom's life in it's hands.
