I didn’t want to post this on facebook, but I did want to honour how bloody amazing my friends are!
Friends set up a website for my cancer journey. They organized gifts and donations, stickerbooks and LEGOs for Evie. Friends brought flowers, and sushi. Friends help me with errands and accompany me to surgeons’ appointments. Friends made me fridge and freezer food and homemade treats!
I’ve been so amazingly touched by people reaching out, and friends (old and new), stepping into to help, or just let me know they are there. And especially to Amy and Dona, both of whom will help me at various times in the weeks after the surgeries – and to Steve who is always there, fixing things, baking, playing with Evie.
There a time when I would have shuddered at the word “community”, but wow do I have a good one.
I am a very lucky girl.
