Kickoff To Chemo

4 years ago

Who ever thought that just 1 day can change your life forever? Since the surgery, there has been a tremendous outpouring of love and support from people you never knew cared so much. There's been casseroles, cards, gifts and so much more. Neighbors who you once just waived hello to in passing have come over and spent time talking, extending words of encouragement and showing their support. The warm feeling I get knowing my mom is so loved overwhelms me with emotion. I don't know how I will ever thank them all. It sounds so cliche but the saying holds true. "You really never know who your true friends are until something tragic happens"

 

With that said, I've decided to throw a Kickoff to Chemo Cookout. I am doing this for 2 reasons. To show my thanks and appreciation to those who have shown their support, and most importantly, to help set the tone for the next 6 weeks of treatment. I strongly believe that a HUGE part of wellness is attitude. If  I can just do something to help get my moms spirits up and show her how many people love and are rooting for her, she will go into this with a clear head and a positive attitude. She is not in this alone. WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS!
