I love my brother . We are 15 months apart in age and close. He put his 3 children in Jiu Jitsu. She is the most successful. Proud uncle watching her sink choke after choke winning tournaments over all the boys. She is creative and artistic. She loves to draw.
Bro texts me one day a year ago "WTF!!!!" It's a scan of a brain tumor. They rush to get it removed. She has a sag in her smile now. Tests reveal the spread....to her spine, inside her bones. She does radiation. It cripples her. Then chemo, which almost kills her. Her chances go from whatever % to terminal.
