Cancer Sucks!

Cancer Sucks! There’s no other way to say it. It had killed so many of my loved ones, including my sister. And recently, we just sent my dear brother and uncle, Joey  home to Ifalik, as he succumbed to this horrible disease. 

As I am sitting here, at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), I kept thinking of dear Joey, as he was a patient here. In fact, the first time he was admitted into the SCCA sister hospital, the Harborview Medical Center, I too was inside another hospital, the University of Washington Surgery Pavilion on  campus recuperating from my own surgery. They took out a football size tumor from my left thigh. Luckily, there were no cancer cells found in it, but I felt back then that was not going to be the end of my ordeal.
