It was only last week that a Lincoln woman found out she had breast cancer.
A day earlier, a woman in her 60s had died in the same city, a year earlier than expected.
The same day, a nurse was called in to perform a routine check on a woman with a chest infection.
The first person she checked out was a young woman in Lincoln who had been diagnosed with breast cancer, according to her family.
Her cancer had spread to her lungs and liver.
“I was scared, I was distraught,” the woman, who asked to remain anonymous, told ABC News.
We just wanted her to get the hell away from our house, and she said, ‘Go get the heck out of here, and don’t come back.’
“The Lincoln woman said the nurse said that she should stay in her home, even though she had been told to “go get the HELL out of there.
Lincoln said she did not understand why the nurse would not let her out of the house and even threatened to call the police if she did. “
He just kept saying, ‘We just want you to get out.'”
Lincoln said she did not understand why the nurse would not let her out of the house and even threatened to call the police if she did.
Lincoln has not made the decision to leave her house.
Instead, she is staying with her sister and brother-in-law in an assisted living facility.
“I am in a state of shock, it is just unbelievable,” she told ABC.
“I don’t know why, why they didn’t let me out of their house.”
It is a familiar scenario for the Lincoln woman.
In December, her sister-inlaw died of breast cancer after having a routine mammogram in her town.
That same month, her brother- in-law died after having his breast cancer tested.
The family had a long battle with the doctors and nurses who cared for the woman and the cancer.
Lincoln told ABC that her sister, who died last year, was one of the first people she had ever seen when she was diagnosed with cancer.
“She was always so beautiful, and I loved her,” she recalled.
When the Lincoln family learned that her brother was also diagnosed, they were devastated.
They began calling Lincoln to try and convince her to stay.
“The first thing I did was just get out,” she explained.
“And then I didn’t want to stay there anymore.
I just didn’t.”
She said she was devastated when her sister’s death was announced, and that the stress of being in the nursing home and dealing with the cancer has been weighing on her since.
It took Lincoln about three months to get to the point where she felt comfortable enough to leave the nursing facility and move back into her house in Lincoln.
She said that although Lincoln has been dealing with anxiety and depression for the past year, she has never been depressed before.
She said it was the first time she felt like she had a new sense of purpose.
“You are a person again, and you are able to feel what you are feeling, and then you are on your own,” she added.
“That is very special.”
She told ABC she does not feel alone.
“We are all people in this town, we are all connected to each other, so you can go outside and say hello to people, and if they ask, ‘What do you do for a living?'”
She said her sister loved to sing and play, and her brother loved to play the piano.
Since the news of her sister dying, she said she has been in a “state of shock.”
“I have never felt that way before, and it’s so sad,” she laughed.
