They thought she had the flu.
In late October of last year, skin-cancer survivor Mindy Dunn began complaining of headaches to her husband, Rev. Dr. Jim Dunn.
It was rare, Jim would say later, for Mindy to complain about anything.
For two straight days, Mindy was in immense pain but refused to be taken to the hospital. Not again. She was sick of hospitals. She was sick of being sick.
On the third day, however, the headaches still hadn’t faded, and Jim was able to convince Mindy that the hospital was no longer an option; it was a necessity.
