The "C" Word

...

Cancer is a scary thing. Recently, Rob's sister was diagnosed with cancer and she is only a few years older than him. My 1st cousin may have lung cancer. He is only 40. Looking at my family list, we have both my grandparents, my father, my uncle (only a few years older than me and diagnosed while in 30s), my 1st cousin (diagnosed in late 20s/early 30s) and now his brother/my 1st cousin. This is all on my father's side of the family. All males except my grandmother and hers was smoking related lung cancer. Still. She had the propensity. Of course, I am hopeful that my cousin does NOT have cancer. That the spot or leision is something else.

We can hope.
