    Hey guys,

    My little sister has had a hard life. She was born with malformed organs including her heart, liver, kidneys, and bladder. She is 23 years old but her organs are the size of a 5 year olds. Even though they are smaller then what they should be she has never let it stop her.
    When she was 12 she had to have a hysterectomy because she had cancer cells present on her uterus. The doctors did the full hysterectomy hoping that it would catch all of the cancer cells early. She did well for a few years until ~3 years ago. She had a physical done and was diagnosed with cervical cancer shortly after. She had her cervix removed.
    She then started having mental issues related to the fact that she could no longer have children. As a result, she went into denial about her underlying health conditions and began to avoid doctors. She eventually went back to she her doctor and had a bunch of tests run. Unfortunately the cancer was not removed and it has spread.
    Today, February 10th, she had a doctor's appointment that she asked me to come with her for. She was told that the cancer has spread to her small intestine, her large intestine, liver, one of her kidney's, her stomach and her breast. She has known that she has been sick for awhile now and she has been preparing. She has already accepted that she is dying and has gone and had all her funeral arrangements done. The specialists she saw today have told her that the cancer has advanced beyond treatment. She has told our family.
    We find out next week how much time she has left with us...

    I'm sorry for unloading this on you all but I had to get it off my chest. I cant stop crying.....
