A cancer diagnosis can be a little too much to swallow at the moment it is delivered.
So, you go to the doctor to get something like a mole checked out-- you think maybe you will have it frozen off, like your friend Bea suggested. The next minute you hear:
“Hmm... this doesn't look good. I'd like to schedule an appointment for a biopsy.”
And next, your well-intentioned doctor begins blasting you with descriptions of treatments and protocols (whatever protocols are?) that you must listen carefully to, and do right away. Your head feels like it might explode.
How you proceed can mean the difference between life and death...

And he states that one decision was absolutely the hardest decision he’s ever made…
