another old story from 2013

This story was told to me on Highway 72, a little west of Scottsboro, Alabama. She stopped about 100 yards in front of me. She wore a baseball cap. She told me of being the full time caregiver for her ex – mother in law. She said it was wearing her down. She was tired. She looked at me and said “to top it all off Jack, I have stage 4 lung cancer” She pulled of her cap to expose her bald head and she began to cry.
