Just received an email from a friend about her 40th birthday party that had been scheduled for June 20th. Was not expecting her to say it had been cancelled because she just found out she has breast cancer, and will be having a double mastectomy on June 16th.
Reading those words felt like a gut punch. I've been sick, shaky, tearful and nauseous ever since. She must feel like that times about ten million. She has already been through so much in her life, and has tried for nearly 10 years to have a child, to no avail. Now this. Rotten and unfair.
