I got to have a very yummy dessert with a friend that I haven't seen in ages. It took a while for me to remember that I hadn't seen her in quite some time but once I did remember of course I had to contact her as soon as possible.
She's one of the people I really admire because she's always been so good at handling things. She's also taught me that having cancer - even stage iv cancer or the equivalent - doesn't mean that life is over, and that asking "but what if the cancer comes back" or "what if I'm in treatment" shouldn't necessarily determine the choices a person with stage iv cancer can make. Do the things you want to do whether you've got stage iv cancer or not.
In case you think my friend is super-human, she's not... she is special, yes, but she's as human as any of us with regular problems and a regular life. I hope to see more of her over the summer. Going on a long vacation isn't really an option while we're looking for a house so I'll be around.
