Its Thanksgiving time again and it’s a little over a year since Mom got her diagnosis. She’s went through cancer treatment and now recovery and the whole family has gone with her on this wild ride.
Her birthday is November 11 and last November 11 we had just gotten her diagnosis, aggressive melanoma tumor located in her right nasal sinus. That meant a nasty tumor under her eye which had already invaded the eye. We talked with 4 doctors and the last one, Dr. Urken of Beth Israel Hospital, said he could operate and remove the tumor. We were waiting to hear when the surgery would be.
