Here’s the thing—when you’re relatively
young and have never had any major illnesses,
cancer is the last thing on your mind. Even
when you’re regularly drenching the bed from
profuse night sweats. Even when you begin to
have trouble taking deep breaths, because
something is growing inside your chest
cavity. Even when a lymph node ‘pops’ in
your neck, out of the blue one morning.”
