On the 15th of February, I was told that the diagnosis is cancer of the sigmoid colon. I was sitting down, but I felt like I was sliding off the chair. It felt like the whole room was tilted to the right, and I was trying to hold on. Tears start coming because all I'm thinking about at that moment is I'm going to have to go through some shit. It has been an unexpected journey into a personal hell that has had all of its ups and downs, but still has a lot of light and gratitude with it.
