Like most people, cancer caught us unexpectedly and sent us down a road untrodden. During a routine physical in January 2013, Marv casually mentioned to his doctor that there was a lump under the skin on the outside of his right thigh. The doctor thought the lump should be removed, and surgery was performed in Slayton in February 2013. When the biopsy was sent to Sioux Falls, the diagnosis revealed soft-tissue sarcoma. Things moved very quickly at that point. On a Thursday afternoon Marv was told he had cancer and appointments were made in Sioux Falls for tests the next two days. We learned that Marv's type of cancer accounts for less than one percent of all the cancers diagnosed every year, and because the physicians in Sioux Falls rarely treat soft-tissue sarcoma, they referred us to the Mayo Clinic for treatment.
