Helaine and I just spent some time with a friend of ours who’s just been diagnosed with breast cancer. It was caught early. She’s going to the right hospital. The outcome will be positive.
Today it’s very scary. The “C” word always is.
We’re glad she spoke with us. H and I learned a lot as we moved through the medical industrial complex. There’s a lot of ground we can help her cover more easily.
She is not the first ‘fellow traveler’ I’ve spoken to. There are three of you I’m chatting with on Facebook and Twitter as you or a parent undergoes treatment.
Let’s face it, I’m a good guy to ask. My treatment worked miraculously. Who wouldn’t want this outcome?
Our friend was shy. She didn’t want to intrude or burden us.
It doesn’t work that way. I know how helpful friends and family were to me. Cancer is not a one person job!
So, go ahead. Ask me about cancer.
