My name is Cathy, and I was diagnosed with Leukemia in June 2016. I underwent chemo therapy, went into remission quickly, and qualified for a stem cell transplant. My brother was a perfect match, and I had the procedure in September 2016. I was given a Faith Key by an old friend of my brother's who I hadn't seen or talked to in twenty-five years. We reconnected and have stayed in contact since.
A week ago, another friend of my brother had a stroke, and I decided to reach out to her. Again I hadn't had contact with her in over thirty years. Her name is Margaret and she has always been a Faith believer but is struggling with therapy and slow progress. I am sending her my key to remind her that Jesus is walking this journey he has set for her each and every day. NEVER LOSE FAITH.
Throughout my journey and the ups and downs, good days bad days, I was very blessed to have Jesus first in my life. The support of family, friends, and a brother who when asked if he would consider being a donor for me replied, "I pray it's me."
How ironic the person who sent me the key was a friend of my brothers and the person I am sending it to is a friend of my brothers.
I truly believe God brings people into our lives for a reason. I AM TRULY BLESSED.
