It was a relief to read this article in the Seattle Times. The author describes how several people live with advanced cancer and AIDS. Not garden variety breast cancer, the kind I was originally diagnosed with in 1999, easily treated and supposedly never returning. No, this was about BAD cancer, the kind that invades your whole body, keeps you in treatment forever and eventually kills you.
I know Jerry from my volunteer work at Gilda's Club and Pat from my work producing the NW AIDS Walk. I was happy to read that Pat is still around after all these years!
