cancer

We learned about a month ago that my wife has breast cancer.  Before it happened to us, I didn't really understand the implications.  Cancer means:
  1. No good choices
  2. Navigating a maze of percentages to decide what sort of treatment to follow.  The percentages vary highly depending upon the specific characteristics of the cancer itself.  Personal genetic profile has an impact as well.
That's all I have to say for now.  We caught it early but this particular cancer is fairly aggressive so treatment has to include chemo.

If there's anything I can do to be helpful, don't hesitate to ask. I owe you one for helping me find a job.

Let me know as well what we can do as well. We're a long way off but we can provide a quite place to stay in Utah if you drop by. Etc.

Thanks. Sorry for the late comment post Vince, once a post is a bit older all the comments aren't published until reviewed to fend off spam. Things re cancer aren't going too bad. One more chemo treatment and the process isn't nearly as bad as it used to be. At least in Sarah's case.
