7/28/16 – The call when a dear friend calls you….to tell you she has breast cancer. Oh, that brought so many memories along with all sort of health stats, experiences of other women who I have gotten to know who have gone this road, books I could recommend reading. Then it hit me that this is real for her and maybe all this isn’t appropriate. What do I say? How do I offer support? We hung up and then i sent a text apologizing if my rambling all over the place was not appropriate. Then I told mom, then I told hubby, then I fell apart.
And those same emotions that were there years back came up. Why her? She eats so healthy, she exercises, she does all the right things…..I know she will be ok but hate that she has to go through all that’s ahead of her.
And her story only reaffirmed for me how important the mission I am on is….
