I’ve typed and retyped what I want to say in this post. It seems flat. So I delete again…. The fact is that no one should have to go through this. No one should have to spend the whole of his Junior year having surgery, chemo, radiation as well as many other pokes, meds and treatments. No mother should have to wake up in the middle of the night and feel a hopeless panic that her child could be taken from her. No family should be pulled along in the undertow of cancer.
