Sarah's Mother's Assessment

I was a medical student

It was mesothelioma

Surgery was one option

I was a medical student

I'm a medical student, now I'm a third year. When my mom was diagnosed I had just started my second year of medical school. That was really hard because I knew a little bit about medicine but not enough to like help her or to intervene in anyway. That was hard. And I was also so busy trying to spend time with her and cope with the pressures of staying in school.
