So, now here is a little story. I will not use her name to protect her privacy. I have a friend and she is a beautiful, spontaneous and outgoing person. We have had our ups and downs, but we are only on ups now. I love this woman and I only want whats best for her. Recently, she was diagnosed with CML: Chronic myelogenous leukemia, which is also known as chronic myeloid leukemia and chronic myelocytic leukemia and some form of kidney cancer. She is a very strong woman and I know she is hating the fact that she needs to depend on others. But she is taking it in stride.
A few weeks ago there was a benefit to help her out with expenses and it turned out rather well. Several bands donated their time and played awesome. Businesses donated items or gift certificates. Others donated handmade items or their time. All these items were raffles off and it was amazing.
It is so wonderful to see people pull together for someone they know and don’t know. I hope everybody says a little prayer for all those out there with this dreaded disease, whether you know them or not. I will pray for them all as well.
