I’ve been meaning to check in here. Then I say, well, scan’s coming up soon, may as well keep postponing until you have the results from it.
And then you get word that one of your melanoma compatriots is nearing the end of her life. She’s younger than you. You somehow started following her CaringBridge site a few years ago, and the updates became few and far between, more terse, less upbeat. It’s never a good sign when a parent needs to take over posting on a child’s cancer blog, or when a spouse takes over from the other spouse.
Go gently and in peace, Michelle. I’m so sorry medicine wasn’t able to save you. It isn’t fair.

I’m so sorry. That must be difficult to bear, watching someone go before you. Sending love and prayers your way.

It’s almost harder to hear that it’s imminent than that it has happened. Either way she’s way too young to go. And I am left with powerful feelings of survivor guilt.
