Well then there is your answer. See, staging is based on the amount of cancer and more importantly WHERE. I'm glad to hear the treatment isn't changing!

Thanks Shiny!

And ya, Joe, I'm glad it's all the same. Less worrying for me to do and much less ass kicking that she'll need to do.

Apparently the cancer is spreading very quickly, so they're gonna try and do the chemo as fast as possible. This, means, though that they might not be able to harvest her eggs for a future child...

Apparently it was found in two places in her arm. On her humerous and right near her rotator cuff.

Chemotherapy begins June 17th.

How does one process cancer? I simply am at a loss right now and in a total free fall. I saw my cousin for the first time since she received the diagnosis, and I can't quite do it. It wasn't until I guess my Mom told my best friend, "Can you ask Zach how hes dealing with her having cancer? They're very close." I was fine until then. You can tell the battle has worn her down and she's subsequently broken up with her boyfriend. The prognosis is still good, but seeing her in that state of tatters isn't exactly easy. And it's a good person. A fucking spectacular person. I mean, I can see me getting cancer and having to fight for my life. I'm a shit head. Hell, if I could I'd take the cancer out of her and put it in my body. But is that selfish that I'm having such an adverse reaction?

I just can't understand it and I don't think I ever will.

And I can't lose her. And for the first time, I actually realize it's a possibility and it's on par with my Dad. What if she's not getting better? What if the Chemo is ineffective? I can't deal with this. I could barely deal with my Dad's illness, but this is a different ball park and game. I feel like I've swallowed dynamite.

I mean, look at the four of us (me, my cousin who has cancer - can't tell can you - my best friend, and my brother) at the wedding for her brother and best friend yesterday:



She looks fucking stunning and has stage god damn four cancer. Is probably one of the best people I've ever met. Always smiling, laughing, and has so much love for everyone in this god damn ill world. And she, SHE gets cancer.

I get there's no rhyme or reason, but at least take out the shitty fuckers. I need them gone. I need her.
