is this opening any better?

My last attempt didn't seem to ring any bells -- but what about this one?
The first Thursday of last July, Jack Robinson received a diagnosis of terminal cancer. After collapsing at work and being taken to hospital, a large mass of abnormal lymphatic tissue had been discovered at the back of his throat. It was identified as a rare and deadly form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma called NK-cell, nasal type. It was in its advanced stages, and he was told not to expect to survive longer than several weeks, or perhaps a few months.

No fully effective means of treatment had yet been found for this rare lymphoma sub-type; especially for one which had reached such a late stage. However, in the odd path of progression that some cancers take, Jack was not yet acutely ill. And so it was that he was released from the hospital the next day with an appointment to see his new cancer specialist the following week.

Less than a day after getting home from the hospital, Jack made up his mind to kill his boss, Janet Akerley.
