Good News Amidst the Bad

Just heard that a good friend of mine who was diagnosed with a particular form of aggressive cancer has been given the all clear. What a relief! Caught early, she was able to get good treatment. Phew!

She had to go through a fairly convoluted process though. Learning new phrases, grappling with costs, figuring out the availability of the best treatment…. it was good that she had a rock steady husband to support her throughout.

Makes me wonder about some other forms of cancer and the support ones needs and can get. Take mesothelioma for instance. Up until recently I have never heard of this. Sounds nasty, as with all cancers. But I am glad that there are organizations to help make such difficult times more negotiable.
