I wrote a journal

So I kept a log of this experience I've had. I entitled it "Cancer" in great big letters. And I started out with finding the lump and I told about how I felt about the doctor telling me in the manner that he did. And I went through the radiation and how I felt, and people who came, things people said. A friend of mine gave me a little sun catcher that said "When life gives you scraps, make quilts", and I thought that was delightful. And different little things that people had done for me I tried to record that. Some people knew I was writing, but not everyone.
