Most of the other guests at Jill's House were older men receiving proton for their prostate cancer. These folks quickly became like extra grandparents to Donna and Mary Tyler Son. There was always a set of arms wanting to hold and moon over the baby. It was a Brigadoon in Cancerville.
I am better for having "met" this little girl and her mother. This story is uniquely theirs, yes, but it is also universal. It is the tale of too many Donnas and too many Sheilas.
With a few weeks to absorb the diagnosis and Donna returning to her shiny self, we settled into Threat Level Orange and were relieved to be rid of the red.
