Hello Ladies,

I just wanted to share an act of kindness with you all..

A friend of mine has just gone through chemo and radiation treatments (for Lung Cancer) and since her hair is only growing in spots, she was told that her hair may not all grow back.  The cancer society offered her a real wig, since this was the only one they had-she smiled and said no someone might need it more than I do.

After all that she had been through-finding out she had cancer just before Christmas. Having to go through chemo-getting sick and losing all her hair-to her there was still someone out there that needed it more than her.

Sometimes I forget how lucky I am that I am healthy and have an amazing family and that even when life gets me down I still have a reason to smile.

If we all gave thought to others maybe the world would be a beautiful place for everyone.

I am taking my friend to diner and getting her a wig on the way!! One good turn deserves another..estatic

    • I was diagnosed with breast cancer after my father had just died two weeks prior. I was living/taking care of my mother and raising my two sons. They were fine just nuts like most teenagers. Mom had diabetes, hypertension, congestive heart failure and kidney failure.  The first thing that came to my mind when they told me was “who will care for my mother?” The second thing I did was to ask God to please allow me to stay here and take care her. I could not focus on myself. I went to the hospital after work everyday for ttreatment and then home to care for my mother and my sons. God had me through it it all, surgery, chemo and radiation. I had Cancer, it did not have me, I had God.  His Grace and Mercy allowed me to care for my mother, work everyday, to be a living testament to His Grace and Mercy, whew*...God also  Blessed me with a caring friend just like you.* (*Fran)*  that was 4 years ago. She not only offered but bought me a lovely black wig. She also made me a casserole or Shepherd‘a Pie  or pasta every week. She did this until my taste buds returned and I could cook again. To this day we still keep in touch. I still have that wig, it is well worn (smile), but I will never be able to part with it, it means too much to me.  God Bless You and your friend.heart heart

    • Hi friends,

      I also have a best friend (25 years).  She is in stage 4 Cancer.  I love her so much.  The thought of losing her is more than I can bear.  I find it very hard to keep time with my own family when I want to spend every waking hour with her.  I don’t know how many more hours, days whatever we have left.
      I can’t seem to be able to do enough for her.  She appreciates the littlest things.  Where oh where do I find all the time.

      Cheryl
