A few days ago, a young lady passed away after a diligent fight with cancer. Stephanie was diagnosed with Small Cell Nueroendocrine Carcinoma in her cervix. It's a rare, fast moving and aggressive form of cancer. This was about 18 mos ago - give or take a month. They initially gave her 3-4 months. She has a awesome husband and 2 little girls. Stephanie was determined to fight it. She had all kinds of emotional support -
In the end, it was the insurance companies and her Doctors who made the decision they could not continue to treat her and other alternative methods would not be covered.
So Stephanie had no other course to take - she had to give up. 37 years old -
She entered hospice May 21 - and died less than 2 weeks later.
Yeah I'm mad.
