The 1st mortality since I started my residency. She refused any form of diagnostics for her tongue lesion until it was too late.
It would be understandable if it was just the fear but from interviews, it had more to do with irrational beliefs - the cancer would spread faster if it was probed, it was already there so what good would a biopsy do... etc.
Frustrating part was when she eventually agreed to be treated, the disease had already weakened her that it was only a matter of time.
And time ran out today.

my sister didn't like Man of Steel. it made me realize - Superman isn't relevant in this generation. He symbolized Hope, Truth, Justice, and Freedom during the Cold War. and because of that he isn't relevant anymore today (Unlike the Avengers, who don't stand for anything, will remain relevant always). Without the Cold War, Superman is just another superhero and a boring one at that because he doesn't have unique powers or doesn't look exotic (like the Hulk).
