Ewing's Family of Tumors

So...

When I was a sophomore in college I went away for the summer to be a camp counselor in Maine. This job took me away from my family for 3 months. When I returned, and hugged my sister again for the first time I noticed a growth in her shoulder blade area. This growth turned out to be a very aggressive and rare form of Ewing Sarcoma.

Dealing with my sister's cancer -- and eventually my wife's cancer -- was probably the most difficult thing ever. The pain resonates in a way when someone you care about is diagnosed with cancer that words basically can't explain. BUT, I did learn a lot going through the process of dealing with a little sister having cancer and a girlfriend who became wife having cancer and I would love to help anyone else out there.
