“My heart sank, and I begged her not to go. My premonition was right in front of me. ‘Please, you have to come home…I’m hearing noises coming out of Monica’s room.’ I found myself breaking down her door.

“She had only ever seen once in her career. My world completely stopped. I had to quit all my activities. I was separated from everyone.

Illness has taken away much, but it has taught me even more.”
