Wow, you put into words what many people feel and cannot convey. A cancer diagnosis certainly changes lives. For the person, what used to be important is no longer. What wasn’t so important, is far more important in the present. You are very fortunate to live in a city with state of the art medical support. Keep writing about this! Your words will reach others in the same cancer boat that are at a loss for words. You, on the other hand, will inspire those others by giving them hope. Which is what us cancer folks do best.
