Last night one of my employees passed out at work. She is one of my favorite people ever. More than an employee she is a beloved family friend and has spent countless nights and weekends with my wife and I, our kids, my wife and her friends. We went in to check on her and drive her home, she's older, maybe her blood pressure flared, who knows. When we were talking to her she never seemed to be quite right. We called her daughter and made the call to send her to the hospital because we were that worried. We were thinking stroke or TIA. Her daughter called us this morning and it turns out she has cancer EVERYWHERE and had no idea. This is a bright, vibrant, and hilarious woman who woke up yesterday morning with no clue she was sick at all. Fuck.

F! indeed!

Have a theory that only nice people seem to get cancer.
While people who have been pricks their entire lives, live to a ripe,old age!
I'm with you. My grandfather was the prime example. My grandmother was a saint and cancer took her at 72. Her husband was a complete prick and an alcoholic/chain smoker from the age of 15 and he made it to 85.

Crap, so sorry to hear this. I lost my father to cancer back in 2007, he was just shy of 73. Cancer sucks!
yeah, lost my dad to cancer at 64 just over 4 years ago. He was a 50+ year smoker so it wasn’t surprising, but heartbreaking nonetheless.

Fuck! That just blows. Really sorry for all of you.

We all know someone, right? I really wish they would figure it out. Heartbreaking is the perfect description.
