I doubt I will ever forget the day my wife Tanya and I sat in the oncologist’s room. He explained that he had some bad news for us and that Tanya had cancer in her throat and while it might be curable the prognosis was not great. I looked at her and I think we were both equally shocked.
He reached for a box of tissues and she must have pulled a good 10 out and dried her eyes. I just sat there stunned. The oncologist was very good and went through and explained our options and how they would proceed. I wasn’t listening at all. I have climbed a heap of hills in my time but this was by far the worst I had ever encountered.
