Shannon's Thoughts: I didn't expect a fic to come up so early in the fandom with such a serious premise--breast cancer. I certainly didn't expect it to be so well-written. The characterizations in this story are... well, as close to perfect as can be expected. The fear Kate feels when she finds a lump in her breast is almost palpable. Her appointment with the doctor left my stomach churning. Her co-workers' worry at her distraction and withdrawal are also beautifully written. There are some grammar and spelling issues that need to be worked out, but those can be easily overlooked by the amazing writing. I can't wait to read more.

Final judgment: 8.5/10.
