We were all asking the wrong questions.
When everyone heard about Deborah Marshall’s headaches, which turned into an emergency room visit in April of 2012, understandably we asked: What’s wrong?
Then, when we learned she had surgery to attack a malignant brain tumor, the number of questions grew: Could she recover? Would she? And, more fundamentally: How could this happen to her, of all people?
The latter question was near-universal. Anyone who knew Debbie was dumbfounded. At age 48, in seemingly good health, such a thunderclap illness is enough of a shock.
