I must say... I am a bit shaken up. While reading the posts on this thread, it was pretty obvious that Tiffany had passed away from cancer-related issues.
I read her full story, never knew her, I became a member of this site well after she was gone.
So I decided to find and read this mentioned story. While on her website, I saw that nasty word... melanoma.
About 5 or so years back, the doctors found a "very suspicious mole" on my back. So they decided to slice it out. Now I have a nice, big fist-sized scar on my back. I've been going back to the doc's periodically, and almost every time, they see another mole they don't like, so they cut it out. Nothing major, just a small cut about half the diameter of a dime... or, many small cuts. They gave me the thumbs-up, and say that I'm good to go. I haven't thought too much about it, and just viewed it as an inconvenience. But after reading about Tiffany, I was reminded that I'm not bullet-proof, and this word "melanoma" can still sneak up on me any time.
Hmm, I guess I should hurry up and buy that ex250 while it's not too late
Life might just turn out to be shorter than you expect it to be, so don't waste it.
