M, one of my oldest friends ( we met in college), told me last night that her younger sister, R, has ovarian cancer. A slight swelling in R’s groin was the only sign that something was possibly wrong. After the diagnosis, she had a total hysterectomy and is now on a chemo regimen that leaves her nauseous and debilitated. Single and living alone, R is staying with her sister. They are both wonderful souls and lucky to have each other.
Thank God for sisters. And we all know that women don’t have to be blood sisters to be there for each other in times of need. My thoughts and prayers are with R.
