When I discovered what the MC was fighting at the end, the whole story made a big impact! Very touching story.

This is very innovative, though I confess to skipping to the end, and the re-reading carefully in the light of the explanatory notes.

I was very touched by this story since my mom is a lung and breast cancer survivor. Thanks for writing this. Excellent!

Excellent! I love to be surprised by something at the end. This piece (and the title, too) become loaded with meaning once one reads the last bit. Very well done!
