Female Portrait Drawing, Otherwise

The possibility of prolonging her life seemed low for her given stage, as I read this type of cancer often returns even at the site of surgery.

Just shortly before hearing about Sputnik, I had returned Home as my Mother had been diagnosed with Stage IV kidney cancer. Needless to say, I was completely overwhelmed emotionally.
