Long story short...(ok, maybe not so short, LOL) ...I was at a manufactured home dealership and the salesman is telling people about ours as we want to sell it and get something bigger..Recently, there was a story in the paper about this elderly couple here that just lost their home in a fire and had no insurance. They called the dealer while I was there, looking to see if they knew of any homes for sale, so they came in and talked to me. It was the elderly lady, her daughter,I believe, she is a little  younger than me. Another young couple, I believe her daughter and son-in- law maybe, I don't remember. ( Am I confusing anyone yet besides myself?) Anyway, the daughter was talking about just getting her hair back after chemo for breast cancer. She was dx'd last May. When we went out to my car for them to follow me home, she said you must know a survivor as I think she saw my pink survivor ribbon magnet on the car. I said, "yes, me!" We started talking and we she gave me a big hug as a "sister" and when we got to my house all of us ladies (poor son-in-law went out to the car finally LOL) we talked for quite a while and she got the address for here! I told her about all the most wonderful friends I have made here and the wealth of info! Her name is Cheryl, and I really hope she comes here, she is just SO very nice. Anyway, so if she comes, I know you will all welcome her as you do everyone!
I firmly believe everything happens for a reason. I hope I see her again!
L&H, Gail

It is a good feeling when you meet a b/c sister isn't it? It always seems to be an instant friend, sister, someone to love and care for. I have by chance met some since my dx. I have never seen them again, but there they are; in my heart.

You are in my heart too friend,

I hope Cheryl is reading and will accept our invitation to join us. Each one of us has had a different experience to share. Even if treatment is over and things are going well we can help each other. And important, too, we build friendships that help so much when we are experiencing new situations. What would we all do without one another? Come on in Cheryl and say Hello. Hugs Mary K. (MK)
