"[Mark's cancer has] been a part of his life for a while now. My life, too. Almost like a person. Like an unexpected guest who shows up on your doorstep, telling you they are going to be a part of your family. You can't say no. So you let that person in. You let cancer into your life and tell it to go in the corner and keep its mouth shut, because it's easier to ignore something when it's silent. You forget it's there. But the thing is cancer never leaves the house. It's there, in every room, every conversation, every hug. You feel its presence." ~ Rachel BroomI am extremely proud of Rachel and thankful that she is our daughter. You can read the entire post by following this link.
