There’s no other word to describe this community. AWESOME
I can’t even begin to guess how many blogs or columns or websites there are that host opinions about cancer.
But I can say this….there is no more compassionate, loyal and caring group than all of you. This group ‘gets it.’ That’s always been the case, from the very first “My Cancer” when Leroy connected with all of you. He didn’t even know it at the time, but he was searching for voices that were just as up-front and honest as his own. Voices that were the echos of living with a disease and not afrraid to express those feelings. The same was true for those of us who were sitting in the side-cars of these journeys. We had our opinions too. We had a voice that was loud and clear and needed to be heard. The stars aligned and this community was forged.
We’ve been through a lot together. We’ve cried at our losses, we’ve celebrated at the news of NED’s, and we’ve lifted each other when that’s what was asked of us.
No one here has ever seen our backs because we don’t turn and run.
