Thank you, my friend


Thank you to my special friend. We met several weeks ago at
a clinic where I was waiting to get pre-surgery blood tests and she was waiting
for a physiotherapy appointment. We smiled then got chatting, as people do. Having heard my BC story
and that I was alone she was at the hospital with a beautiful bunch of flowers
and a special bottle of wine when I came out of theatre. It was such an amazing
feeling to not be alone after all. We have caught up since and she kindly lets
me use her computer instead of travelling to the library.  In the meantime she makes me a cuppa then we sit and chat.
She has three of the cutest animals who each give me their own brand of comfort.
This week I confided my deepest darkest secrets to my new friend and she told
me she also had breast cancer 3 years ago. No wonder she knew what I needed.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    We are rarely entirely alone, but sometimes we think we are. I am not alone but it took breast cancer to find out that my neighbour had it ten years before. Her getting on with life (15 years now) was a great encouragement for me to do the same. Keep heart and enjoy your new friendship.
