According www.cancer.gov a tumor marker is anything present in or produced by cancer cells or other cells of the body in response to cancer or certain benign (noncancerous) conditions that provides information about cancer.
This information is, such as how aggressive it is, what kind of treatment it may respond to, or whether it is responding to treatment.
Tumor markers have traditionally been proteins or other substances that are made at higher amounts by cancer cells than normal cells.
These can be found in the blood, urine, stool, tumours, or other tissues or bodily fluids of some patients with cancer.
This news shook Nana to her core.
She said, "That night I could barely sleep. I lay in bed worried and doing one thing I’m always perfect at, overthinking.
I woke you up in the middle of the night to kneel down and pray beside the bed. You obliged. Your knees weak so you put a pillow under.
I don’t remember crying as much as I did as I prayed…I asked God for peace in my head and in my heart and a clean bill of your health."
Nana described how King Kaka reacted to the news.
"He (God) answered through you… I don’t know how you slept so soundly to this day. Yaani we are testing for cancer in your body in the morning and you sleep throughout the entire night???!! I want Notes.
Overthinkers in the house, you feel me? @thekingkaka we want notes.
To forever with you.”
