I'm putting my key in the mail today to send to a friend whose cancer is worse than mine. The fact that two 40 something women, healthy athletes, can be stricken with cancer is just not fair. My breast cancer is going to be controlled and eliminated and never to come back. Her cervical cancer has spread, and her prognosis is not good.
Strength is the word on my key and it has also been a part of my daily world these last few months since my diagnosis. I wear it to chemo and I hold it when I'm feeling sick or needing a boost of positivity. Today, I'm able to send the key to her from a place of strength and hope knowing I'm going to be okay - chemotherapy is almost over and it's working. My friend cannot say the same. I hope this gives her the strength it has given me to get through this tough time.
