There are not always clear answers in cancer. One tragic example of this is embodied in the story of Elizabeth Joice, a sarcoma patient I knew both personally and professionally, who recently passed away shortly after the birth of her first child.
Yesterday was D-Day. For 48 hours I waited for the results of my CT scan. Every two months I have a CT, but I never get used to it, nor do I ever truly believe that the scan will show no new growth in my liver.
As tragedy unfolds key focal point is military policy requiring troops to be unarmed on base.
