and it’s not good news. Riti has ovarian cancer. The tumor is displacing her organs and causing the fluid build up. There’s very little that can be done, They could try an implant and hormone shots but there’s no guarantee that will help. Then there’s the quality of life question. I don’t think I need to go over the other option. I just can’t stand to think of her suffering needlessly. I pray I can make the right decision.

I am so sorry, Mark. Cancer is sneaky and underhanded. It took my Hank and we had no idea. Love her a lot.
