A few months back, when my mother’s breast cancer returned, I asked this here internet to help lift my mother’s spirits. As you can read about in THIS POST, I asked anyone and everyone who was so inclined to send a postcard to my mother, in hopes of brightening a very tough, rough period. I didn’t tell her these were coming, so it was a genuine surprise to her when they began flooding in.
In light of all this, my mother requested that I post the note below on her behalf, addressing all of you fine folks. If you are reading this, and you’d still like to send a postcard, please do so (and tell all of your friends) - and no, she doesn’t know I just asked that, either ;).
Here now, though, is my mother’s letter to you all…
I am not a writer and have a hard time expressing my feelings on paper and I might repeat myself a couple of times, but that’s fine for what I need to do. I want to thank the hundreds of people all over the world who took time from what they were doing to send me well wishes as I fight this disease that has touched so many people besides myself.
I didn’t know about the letter my son posted on the internet after I found out about my cancer returning . He asked for people to send me cards to cheer me up. Each and every one of them have done just that, and have given me hope. I had no idea he had asked this until the cards started to come in, and then he told me.
There are so many things I want to say that come from my heart as I re-read the many postcards that I have received and that continue to come. I want to tell you that each and every post card and letter that I received brought tears to my eyes. I know we have a world filled with good and loving people, but I really didn’t know that there are so many good people in this world that are truly caring about a person that they didn’t even know, and were willing to send a note of well wishes to. The well wishes from each and every one of you touched my heart, and even to write this I wipe away those good-feeling tears .
I have placed the postcards on a board that a friend of mine has called my “Wall of Health”. I can sit at my desk and look over and read the many cards of encouragement - that these cards have brought to me. How could I not be positive about this ordeal? We all deal with something in our life all the time, but I am so very, very lucky to have people all over the world wishing me the best.
I have completed five chemo treatments and after two more I will have a PET SCAN done to see if it’s working. I believe that with positive thinking and all the well wishes I’ve received that I can overcome this. My heart still goes out to the many other people in this world who are also dealing with this disease, and only wish and hope that they have the support I do - A loving family, friends, and well wishes from all of you. What more can I ask for, except good health?
To all of you I send my heartfelt thanks from the bottom of my heart. Your cards of encouragement have helped me get through a lot. To the many of people who have dealt with this disease and told me your stories of healing, I thank you for giving me hope. Please know that I will forever be thankful to all of you.
