tow-head messes
 
I received a message on facebook the other day from a dear old friend (my age, so not old - you know what I mean).  I haven't talked to her forever, but I think about her often.  You see, she lost her child at the precious age of 3 to leukemia and her profile pic is an image of him.  We don't talk very often; you know how that goes - life takes you in different directions, time flies by, and before you know it, it's been years since you last talked.  My friend and I go way back.  We met the first day of kindergarten, and were inseparable for most of our childhood and through our teen years.  We dressed alike, we played on the same sports teams, schooled all the neighbor boys in basketball, people thought we were sisters, and oddly enough we have the same name.

Anyways, like I was saying, we don’t talk very often but when we do it’s like we just spoke yesterday.   I found out that she works in the Cancer Unit at the Med Center, which tells me one thing…she’s a very strong woman.  It’s amazing to me that she was able to turn a tragic loss into a life long commitment and career. I'm telling you, I get choked up every time I see his little picture, I don't know how she does it.  The motivation that drives her is obviously straight from her heart.  I commend her because the medical field needs passionate people and knowing her my whole life, I know she is. Needless to say, we can all do our part in supporting the research of this horrendous disease

Thank you to my friend and all of the others to that help save lives.
