Most teenagers think of themselves as indestructible. Patty Smith, 17, had no reason to feel otherwise. When a lump on her arm proves not to be benign, life becomes fragile, finite, and precious. How Patty responds could well stand as a model of how we would want to react in similar circumstances. Illus.
