I was diagnosed with an aggressive, stage IV breast cancer in 2013, after finding a lump. The cancer had already spread to five organs, including my brain. I was therefore immediately considered a terminal case. This was just an incredible, horrifying shock to wrap one’s head around. I was only 36, and had no family history of cancer or anything that might have made me think this could happen to me.
There’s a good chance I wouldn’t be here right now if it wasn’t for my wife.
Thanksgiving is the time when we try to be thankful for what we have, to enjoy the company of our friends and family over a nice meal, and for many of us, it's the official start to the holidays.
