And again

Just 1 short year after losing my grandmother to cancer, we have received news that her oldest daughter, my aunt, has also been diagnosed.  Its a particularly aggressive strain, with a 95% chance of recurring within 2 years.  In March she’s scheduled for an extremely severe surgery, and will lose many internal organs, including her bladder, kidney and 2 lymph nodes.

Sometimes in London I feel so close to family, no further than a different part of Canada.  But today I feel really, really far away, a distance too far for any plane,  boat or train to reach.
