A cancer story episode 4

A cancer story episode 4.  

After having my double mastectomy last Tuesday, I have been feeling some pain, disbelief and gratitude all wrapped up in one emotional mess.

Today I got a surprise visit from two good friends that I have not seen in a while and this is when I realized that cancer—just like weddings—brings people together.
