You have been cancer free for two years now. Congratulations!
That was a terrible time. The whole time I was getting treatment, things were absolutely terrible! Just terrible!
What do you mean? In what way?
On top of everything else, we lost all of our friends! We were totally alone through all of the treatment.
Your friends abandoned you? All of them?
Every one of them! When people learned I had cancer, they stopped coming around. Later, a couple of them even told us, “I didn’t know what to say.” They really told us that!
