Like puzzles, cancer pictures get clearer as treatments go on

Posted on October 24th, 2011 by

I enter the radiation waiting room inside the Mayo Clinic Specialty Building in Phoenix each morning and pause at a table. On the table is a jumbled jigsaw puzzle. The picture is incomplete…In the waiting room, we do not discuss our medical maladies. If you weren't being treated for cancer, you wouldn't be sitting here. There are a few tired hellos and goodbyes, and an occasional wisecrack about our lack of puzzle-solving skills.
