I was given my Courage key from a family member that had lost her youngest son to a drunk driver.
I am not sure how long she had it for but she sent it to me after we found out that my 3 year old daughter had a Wilm's Tumor, a rare kidney cancer. It came at the perfect time, when I was trying to find strength and acceptance in the challenges we were given.
Our daughter is nearing completion of her chemotherapy treatments and we are even planning a trip to celebrate being cancer free.
The Courage key has been in the back of my mind for awhile now and when I learned of a friend of a friend, who's 4 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with a rare type of Leukemia, I knew I had found the right person to pass it on to. Her journey will be a long one and I hope that the necklace will bring her comfort during the course of her daughter's treatments.
