Hi everybody, I thought I'd also share something more personal with you. I'm upset because my longtime friend here in Milan has cancer. The tumor was incorrectly diagnosed a few years ago and was thought to be benign. Apparently it's not!
I got to know my friend almost 10 years ago. Her family and she hosted me for a couple of weeks when I visited Milan for the very first time. They embraced me with their hospitality even though I couldn't speak Italian at that time. Endlessly generous, my friend's someone who always cares for everyone else before herself.
She's being very brave about the bad news. Right now, we know very little, and I'm just concerned that the cancer could be quite advanced now simply because it's been left alone for a few years...
I'm not sure what to do.
