Hey guys and gals,
A little over three years ago, just a few months after I first broke my leg,
we received the news that my aunt had cancer... she, being the hardheaded
German-Irish spinster that she was, had long noticed the lumps in her breast and
side and neck, but refused to see a doctor, instead thinking that they would
"go away" on their own... by the time the Drs. saw her she was in stage 4, and
they were amazed that she'd gone that long without seeing a doctor (I told you
she was hard headed)... one even commented to me that the only place he's seen
such growth was in the old textbooks from the turn of the last century... a
dubious distinction, to say the least.
Well, she was doing great until this summer... something happened that made
the cancer turn severely aggressive... even though they'd removed her left
breast, and she'd had chemo & radiation treatment this entire time, it managed to
spread throughout her stomach, liver, and up the spinal column... seven weeks
ago the Doctor gave her "less than 6 weeks" to live... she's no longer in
pain, she passed away this morning at 5:00 am, at the age of 69.
Now, I may be wrong, but I believe if she'd seen a Doctor at the first sign
of something growing where it shouldn't be, she'd be with us still and in far
better health than she's been these last three years... I know a majority of
the members on this list are age 50 or older, but PLEASE tell your loved ones to
have their yearly checkups... and this stuff can hit at any age... a friend
of mine lost his mother to breast cancer when she was 35, and a girlfriend back
in high school lost her mom when we were in our senior year... she couldn't
have been more than 40.
Anyway, I've rambled long enough... thanks to those who offered up prayers of
healing on her behalf over the last three years... now the family needs those
