Last week a friend had a routine medical exam performed on her. This week she has informed me that a mass was found. A biopsy was done. The news: not good. She will have surgery early next week and to quote her, “Only after they do biopsies on the nodes will I know if I have dodged this bullet.”
Wow, what a difference a day makes. A seemingly healthy and vibrant woman who is beautiful and kind; a wife, mom, friend, business owner and contributing member of society is given a wake up call. In an instant everything changes. The calendar is cleared of all engagements except for a surgery that will hopefully extract this unwanted mass of angry and destructive cells from the body that currently houses them.
