If you’ve never had a family member, friend or loved one who has been diagnosed with cancer, you’re either very, very lucky or you’re a liar.
I remember back when I was in high school, cancer was something that your friend’s neighbor’s uncle had. It seemed so foreign.
Then, when I got to college, it was something that happened to my friends’ mothers. It began to get more real.
Year after year, it kept hitting closer to home until, last year, bam, like a smack upside the head, it did hit home.
