Hannah's daddy was a teacher who barely made enough money to raise his six kids. Hannah wore hand-me-downs from her older sisters. For Christmas she usually got used dolls and books. As a child, she yearned to have the beautiful clothes, cars, and homes that she often saw on TV and in magazines.

Several years after she graduated from college, she became part-owner of a successful interior decorating business in Manhattan. Her life became what she had dreamed about as a little girl. A successful business woman, she had a handsome, wealthy Fiancé. She owned her own co-op near Central Park. She took skiing vacations in the winter and exotic cruises in the summer. At the age of 30, Hannah was on top of the world.

Then she underwent a routine health checkup, and her perfect world crumbled. Her doctor told her that she had pancreatic cancer. Surgery was necessary to determine how much the cancer had spread. Hannah was operated on a week later. The surgeon suspected that cancer had spread to vital organs. Ten days later, the lab confirmed his suspicions.

Hannah's doctor said he could treat her with chemotherapy and painkillers, but it was just a matter of time before the cancer killed her. She asked how much time. He guessed that she had less than a year to live. How can this be, Hannah wondered. Doesn't this always happen to someone else?

A couple of weeks later, she visited another cancer specialist. He examined her and read her medical and lab reports. He said he agreed with her surgeon. "If you have any once-in-a-lifetime plans, do them now," he advised.

Instead, Hannah spent her last months in her co-op, tended to by hospice workers. Her family and friends visited her regularly. The moment before she died, she opened her eyes and tried to say something to her Fiancé. She squeezed his hand weakly.

"She was in constant pain," her Fiancé said. "At the end, she could barely whisper. She weighed 80 pounds when she died. I can't believe that God allows things like this to happen to people."

Bác sĩ phẩu thuật nghi ngờ ung thư đã lan đến cơ quan quan trọng. Mườ ngày sau, phòng thí nghiệm xác nhận nghi ngờ của ông.

Bác sĩ của Hannah nói ông có thể điều trị cô bằng hoá trị và giảm đau, nhưng chỉ là thời gian trước khi ung thư giết cô. Cô hỏi còn bao lâu nữa. Ông đoán là ít hơn một năm. Làm sao có thể như thế, Hannah tự hỏi. Điều này luôn xảy ra với người khác không?

Hai tuần sau, cô đi khám một chuyên gia ung thư khác. Ông khám và đọc bệnh án và báo cáo xét nghiệm. Ông nói ông đồng ý với bác sĩ phẩu thuật của cô. "Nếu còn dự tính gì trong đời, hãy làm ngay đi," ông khuyên cô.

Thay vì như vậy, Hannah trãi qua tháng cuối cùng trong căn hộ của cô, chăm sóc bởi những người trại tế bần. Gia đình và bạn bè thăm viếng cô thường xuyên. Trước khi chết, cô mở mắt và muốn nói gì đó với vị hôn phu. Cô bóp tay anh yếu ớt.

"Cô ấy thường bị đau," vị hôn phu nói. "Lúc cuối cô chỉ có thể thì thào. Cô chỉ năng 80 pounds khi chết. Tôi không thể tin Chúa lại cho phép điều này xảy ra với con người."

Bố của Hannah, là một giáo viên chỉ kiếm vừa đủ tiền để nuôi sáu đứa con. Hannah mặc lại quần áo thừa từ các chị của mình. Vào dịp lễ Giáng Sinh cô thường nhận được búp bê và sách vở đã dùng rồi. Khi còn là một đứa trẻ, cô khao khát có quần áo, xe hơi, nhà cửa đẹp đẽ mà cô hay thấy trên ti-vi và tạp chí.

Một vài năm sau khi cô tốt nghiệp đại học, cô trở thành đồng sở hữu của một công ty trang trí nội thất thành công ở Manhattan. Cuộc sống của cô trở nên như những gì cô đã mơ ước về nó khi còn là một cô bé. Một nữ doanh nhân thành đạt, cô có hôn phu đẹp trai, giàu có. Cô có một cửa hiệu của riêng mình kế bên Central Park. Cô trượt tuyết trong kỳ nghĩ đông và du lịch trên biển ở nước ngoài vào mùa hè. Ở vào độ tuổi 30, Hannah đã gặt hái rất nhiều thành công.

Sau đó cô trãi qua một cuộc kiểm tra sức khoẻ thường xuyên, và thế giới tuyệt vời của cô đã tan thành mây khói. Bác sĩ bảo cô bị ung thư tuyến tuỵ. Cần phải giải phẩu để xác định ung thư đã di căn đến mức độ nào. Hannah được giải phẩu một tuần sau đó. Bác sĩ giải phẩu nghi ngờ ung thư đã xâm lấn sang các bộ phận quan trọng. Mười ngày sau, phòng thí nghiệm xác nhận những điều bác sĩ đã nghi ngờ.

Bác sĩ của Hannah bảo ông có thể điều trị cho Hannah bằng liệu pháp hoá học và thuốc giảm đau, nhưng đây chỉ là vấn đề thời gian trước khi căn bệnh ung thư giết chết cô. Cô hỏi còn bao lâu nữa. Ông nói cô còn sống không đầy một năm nữa. Làm sao điều này lại có thể xảy ra kia chứ, Hannah tự hỏi. Có phải chuyện này luôn luôn xảy ra cho những người khác hay không?

Một vài tuần sau, cô đến khám tại một bác sĩ chuyên khoa về ung thư khác. Ông khám bệnh cho cô và đọc các báo cáo về sức khoẻ và xét nghiệm của cô. Ông nói ông nhất trí với bác sĩ giải phẩu. "Nếu cô có bất kỳ kế hoạch phải làm một lần trong đời, hãy thực hiện chúng ngay bây giờ," ông khuyên cô.

Thay vì thế, Hannah trãi qua những tháng cuối cùng trong cửa hiệu của cô, được phụ giúp các bởi các nhân viên trong nhà tế bần. Gia đình và bạn bè đến thăm cô thường xuyên. Khoảnh khắc trước khi qua đời, cô mở mắt và cố gắng nói điều gì đó với chồng sắp cưới. Cô siết chặt tay anh một cách yếu ớt.

"Cô ấy bị đau liên tục," hôn phu của cô nói. "Vào phút lâm chung, cô ấy chỉ có thể thì thào. Cô cân nặng 80 pounds khi mất. Tôi không thể tin được Thượng đế lại cho phép những việc như thế này xảy ra với con người."
