    And So It Goes..

    My sister lived. She was born, she went to school, dated, loved. It's hard to focus on all that happened before she fell ill. She was smart, beautiful, and alive, in every sense of the word. Yet, cancer comes in and takes away, chips away at what we have, the only thing we...

    Today

    I just lost my sister to cancer today. She had stage 4 cancer of the lungs, bone, breast. She was admitted to the hospital and passed away in the ER this day. It is still quite a shock as we had known this day was coming just not this quickly. More on this later.
