The Thing in the Ward by Nicholas Gray
Gavin has cancer. He's run out of options and must try a trial drug in order to fight it off. He's wheeled into a ward and starts his treatment of Donozine, but what Gavin doesn't know is there is something else in the ward with him, and it is hungry.
You are not the first ...
My first of 2 Nick Gray short stories. The reader is given an inside view of what it means to have cancer. When a cure is offered, the only response is when can I have it. Gavin is taken on a wild ride and finds out the cost of the cure. Something is next door to him and Gavin’s future is now back in question.
