Perky and energetic, she invested many hours involved in cancer programs. She exercised, attended support groups. Kept current with local cancer events . Was always happy to share her knowledge.
Her cancer was a lymphoma, chronic. Always with her. Always being monitored. Somewhere in her consciousness, she felt unsettled. She was sharing her body with an unfriendly stranger.
She took great pride in her children and grandchildren. And in her husband, a good looking supportive man.
A cruise is planned for next summer. She is committed and excited about the trip. Still, she wonders out loud, “Will I still Be here?”
