ANOTHER person I know has been struck with cancer. WTF? Bob's teacher for next year had breast cancer several years ago and has been okay since. In May, she found a lump in her neck, which is metastatic cancer. Since she had breast cancer before menopause, it's most likely the kind with the genetic component, which is bad. She's around my age and has four kids, the youngest of whom is in 4th or 5th grade. She's always wanted to live abroad, but never had the chance. Now, she wants to take her daughter to Paris for two weeks this summer, before she starts treatment again. Our school is trying to collect money to get them there. She's a wonderful teacher, from what I've heard from the parents who have kids she's taught. I'm hoping very hard for her to be okay and at the very least, for her to be able to take this trip with her daughter. Please send any good thoughts to her if you can.
