Thoughts about losing people to cancer:
Yet another bright soul lost to this unforgiving disease.
I've lost 3 very influential people to cancer:
my very 1st journalism professor.
I know people who are living with it right now, and I can only hope the best for them.
Its such a tricky thing. It can hide, grow, scatter, disappear, reappear... it can take a life as fast as it can be removed.
For both my grandma and my aunt, it was found early and removed... but came back later. When it comes back... its hard to know what to do next since your body is exhausted from treating it the first time.
My journalism professor had pancreatic cancer. He died only a month after doctors found it. I literally found out about his cancer this past wednesday... and he was gone Monday night. Five days.
Days count. Moments count. The things you write are still left behind once you are physically gone.
