After a couple of minutes catching up on domestic details, my stepmom tells me she’s just about had it with this illness but there isn’t a hint of resignation in her voice.

While I accepted the reality of metastatic breast cancer as soon as the diagnosis hit, it sounds like it is just starting to register with my parents.

Rage is a fire that can help you face up to the most unimaginable things, put a spring in your step, and even thrive.
