It wasn't the news Dian Bloom wanted to hear. The scan she had hoped would tell her she was cancer free came back with what her doctors called "an area of concern." But the spunky 18-year-old Farmington High School senior isn't letting the news get her down. Not right now, at least. This week, she's enjoying a week in Bora Bora with her grandmother and her closest friends. She'll think about her cancer next week, when she gets home. Bloom was diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer, or angiosarcoma, last May. In the time since then, she's gone through surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy.
