On November 26, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order creating a White House task force on … Continue reading Operation Lady Justice Isn’t

I saw you at the oncologist's office. Even before then, for weeks, I've seen your brain, the invader and the T-cells fighting it. I've felt your fear. In fact, had it myself when I thought my brain was trying to tell me that I had the cancer. I heard the words, "It's grown" and knew … Continue reading I Saw You at the Doctor’s Office
