This comes from a website called Canadian Virtual Hospice.
It is a poignant and heart wrenching message from a metastatic inflammatory breast cancer patient.
I am going to join the site so I might leave some words of comfort to Suzanne.
I have no idea what those words will be, but this is one of those times that "doing nothing" seems wrong.
Suzanne in her own words, is "staring the end in the face and living now." I can't imagine what she must be feeling but to know that there are people beyond her computer screen who have read her words and want her to know she is not all alone might afford some small measure of comfort.
If you feel you want to leave her a message and do not want to join the site, you can leave a message in the comments on this blog. I will copy and paste them.
I don't know Suzanne, and until twelve hours ago, didn't have any knowledge of this website, either. But now I do... and this is a global virtual community. Our paths crossed in cyberspace via a third party. Her words are haunting.
I vowed to give voice to the Stage IV patients by devoting one blog post each week to metastatic breast cancer. This week, it's about being a Fearless Friend. A new friend. Join me?
