‘Pre Cancer Pink ‘ By Emmy Corman

In this short story my doctor finds a lump in my breast, this is extra scary because my dead mother had breast cancer. While breast cancer wasn’t the thing that killed her, it definitely brought a dish to the party. Unfortunately I can’t get a scan of the lump for over a week. But not to worry, I have a work trip to NYC that I believe will take my mind off the possible diagnosis. When I land in NYC I am greeted with the entire city decorated for Breast Cancer Awarness Month. This is a humorous story about looking for distractions even though the situation is all you — and apparently all of NYC — can think about.
