“There are so many misconceptions about cancer – people think we drink tea and listen to soothing music all day. In addition to endless doctors’ appointments, lab work and treatments, we still have to call the electric company and fight when our bill is messed up. You still have to take the trash out. Nothing stops.”
Christie Buckner, who died by Ovarian Cancer, April 4, 2010 at age 39.
