My friend Angela is going through a tough time right now. She’s in the midst of chemotherapy for ovarian cancer. Her treatments started in mid July and her last treatment is on Halloween. That’s a lot of chemo! And it’s very aggressive treatment with super strong medicines, because they’re doing all they can to make sure the cancer doesn’t return. It’s cancer annihilation!
Angela is a wonderful person and she’s been a good friend and positive influence on me since we first met a couple of years ago out here in cyberspace. I’ve never met her in person, but I count her as a true and real friend.
And she’s handling the cancer and treatments in a way that is so her. There are bad days and weaker days, I know, but she’s facing these challenging months head on, with humor and positive energy. So even in this physically and emotionally hard time, she’s still being a good example for me to follow!
I think of Angela pretty much every day, but tonight (last night by the time this comes out) I thought that I needed to do just a bit more. So I’m asking you for a little help.
Would you guys to send her some prayers or good thoughts or positive energy, or whatever you believe in? Or give her some encouragement in the comments here or visit her blog and say hi?
Maybe she won’t see it today, but I’m thinking she’ll see it when she needs it. But I guess when you’re going through chemo, there are no days when you don’t need a little bit more support and love.
She’s writing about the cancer and chemo as she can, and it starts here if you’re interested: Cancer: And So the Story Begins.
Thanks for your help with this!! Cyber friends give cyber hugs, and I just thought it would be nice to send a few hugs Angela’s way.
