This breast cancer support group was different than others I’ve presented to in the past. It was encouraging to meet numerous long-term survivors – most being at 10+ years! Cancer continues to be a difficult topic for many people, but this group exuded a peacefulness about their history, diagnosis and support for the newest members of the group, as if taking a journey with a best friend. The name is most fitting – whether new or old to this disease they embrace each other with comfort and understanding. Their group hug at the end of the meeting put all my impressions into one palpable expression of Pink Hope.
Thank you, Shirley for the invitation. I hope that my writing journey was enjoyable for all of you and I appreciate all the suggestions for my path ahead. God bless each of you.
