A DOWNER OF A THREAD.
I just found out today that my aunt has thyroid cancer. My brother told me it was the most treatable type of thyroid cancer, so I hope he's right. It has just really hit me hard, though. My aunt and I are very close. Her daughters, my cousins, are like my sisters. Just the thought of her not making it through this is too much for me to bear. Her physician is on vacation so she has a lot of unanswered questions right now too. Ahhh, it's just so hard!
And to top it off, I'm supposed to be going to visit one of my cousins in Myrtle Beach on Wednesday with my other cousin (so, two of her daughters)! So this is going to be a tough trip, I think.
So, I don't know. Have any of you had any instances with cancer? Have you been directly affected by it through family or friends?
