It Was My Key’s Turn To Be Passed Along
March 2015 •
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was very emotionally overwhelmed and ultimately depressed. A friend gave me the key; it had been given to her “new”. I wore it many times - mostly for Chemo sessions, any Dr. appointment, and before /after surgeries. It was always something to hold on to and ground me. It reminded me that there was always someone out there thinking of me. My story turned out well and I am cancer free now. A friend at works daughter (26 yrs old) was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer; it has already spread to her liver and lungs. Her prognosis is not good. I knew right away that it was my key’s turn to be passed along. All the goodness rubbed into it needed to go to someone else. I am thankful for the time I had my Giving Key, but more thankful to be able to pass hope along.
