Cancer Lady Dancing In The Streets
(Little Rock, AR – 26 July 2010) - Pathology reports released late today by the UAMS Cancer Institute have revealed that Little Rock native Stacy Sells, and her whippersnapper medical team, have officially kicked cancer’s butt.
The team was prepared to release the report to Sells on Thursday at her regularly scheduled appointment. However, according to Dr. Suzanne Klimberg, Director of the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Breast Cancer Program, “this news was just too good to sit on for the next three days. Stacy needed to have this news immediately.”
“While the initial diagnosis of Inflammatory Breast Cancer was less than positive, we have taken an aggressive treatment journey that has resulted in eradication of the beast,” said Klimberg.
Proud of her team of UAMS cancer warriors, Sells stood by with a big grin across her face. “What little hair I have is standing on its end,” she said. “These people are smarter than a barrel of monkeys, for sure.”
Sells admitted that only two weeks ago physicians told her that the chances of not having any cancer cells were only 20 to 25%.
Dr. Issam Makhoul, Sells’ oncologist and a native of Syria said, “Like they say here in my adopted home here in the south, ‘Bless her heart.’”
Further details will be made available on Thursday following the pathology consultation. The physician team has indicated that radiation therapy will still be a necessary measure to reduce the chances of recurrence.
"Who cares! Bring on the radiation," said Sells. "The only real thing that matters today is the beast is dead."
Ding Dong! The Witch is dead. Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
Wake up - sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead. She's gone where the goblins go,
Below - below - below. Yo-ho, let's open up and sing and ring the bells out.
Ding Dong' the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Witch is dead!
