Cancer shouldn't be allowed to tell us when time is up

"She’d always say,
I wish I’d known you sooner…
that was all we ever wanted –
just a little more time."

Raphael, a young woman diagnosed with bowel cancer, smiles as she takes a selfie.

"All that’s left to say is that I loved Raphael very much and I always will. I would do anything to have her back. But since I can’t, I will remain a very strong advocate for research and early detection."

- Clint, Raphael's husband
