13 years ago, my friend had breast cancer. We have been really lucky that she has been in remission all this time. About a year ago, she started feeling...odd. She went to her "cancer" doctor for her exam and discovered she has cancer cells in her spine.
She started taking oral chemo and radiation. Then she went to have a port put into her head to get the chemo to her spine easier...that wasn't enough. She now has a port installed to her collar bone for additional chemo.
She's very weak, losing her hair, but most of all, she's sick. I know that seems like a stupid thing to say,but this is the most INTENSE, independent, and intelligent woman I have ever known - it's hard for me to see her so sick. I love her to pieces. She's incredible.
I am so afraid of losing her. She is like my older sister. We have been through so many good and bad things together. We always laugh about being old ladies sitting at the beach watching the young hot guys!
Man, what am I going to do if she doesn't make it.
