At some point in our lives,

almost every one of us will have our heart broken.

My patient Kathy planned her wedding when she was in middle school.

She would meet her future husband

by age 27,

get engaged a year later

and get married a year after that.

But when Kathy turned 27, she didn't find a husband.

She found a lump in her breast.

She went through many months of harsh chemotherapy

and painful surgeries,

and then just as she was ready to jump back into the dating world,

she found a lump in her other breast

and had to do it all over again.

Kathy recovered, though,

and she was eager to resume her search for a husband

as soon as her eyebrows grew back in.

When you're going on first dates in New York City,

you need to be able to express a wide range of emotions.


Soon afterwards, she met Rich and fell in love.
