Five years ago, I came home from my job as the lead worker in Shelton’s SunnySide School cafeteria and got one of the worst phone calls of my life. My son’s doctor called and told us that they had found a mass and he needed surgery to remove it. We scheduled the operation as soon as possible.
The procedure went well, but the news from our doctor wasn’t good. The mass was mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that could reappear in another part of my son’s body. My son will need regular testing to ensure that he can enjoy life without cancer.
