Mind-Blowing, Life-Saving Research

My mother’s father died of cancer before I was born. My mother was pregnant with me, but had not told her father that she was to have a second child. The story I’ve been told is that they opened him up to remove the cancer — and found it everywhere. They closed him back up and sent him home to die.

Both of my mother’s brothers died of cancer. All three of these men were heavy smokers, one ignored the signs of potential trouble for years, and all three died from cancer.
