Rachel was the most wonderful girlie-girl. She was bubbly and full of fun. She approached the battle with cancer with all her might. She was diagnosed on December 6, 1998. After her first biopsy she was playing with some makeup that her aunt brought. She put on this purple-red lipstick. The surgeon came in to check on her and he seemed very concerned. He checked all her vitals and called the nurse to come into the room. I finally asked what the problem was and he told me that her coloring wasn't good and there seemed to be a problem. I asked him about the coloring and he said her lips were a funny color. I started to laugh and told him she had lipstick on and that she was very good at applying it so that it was only on her lips. He seemed very relieved and then had a good laugh about it too. That was Rachel! No matter how poorly she felt, lipstick was the answer!
