Quotes

"I wanted to pull the remaining hair out of my nearly bald head," says Jacobs, 43, who lives in Santa Barbara, California. "Despite the fact that people lovingly believe you will indeed be fine, those words just don't sit well. What I wanted to know was that people would be there for me, no matter when or where I needed them. It was that reassurance that gave me hope on especially difficult days."
"I am quite sure of the diagnosis - she had cancer. She was extremely emaciated. Given her rather high rank in society and the information scientists obtained studying mummies of elite Pazyryks, I do not have any other explanation of her state. Only cancer could have such an impact" Letyagin said in his analysis, according to The Siberian Times
...me, you’ll tell me that this whole mess is beshert, Yiddish for ‘meant to be’ – that it’s all part of a plan from a higher power," she says. "Maybe terminal cancer is part of some crazy plan, but I promise you that these are the last things I want to hear from anyone."
