"Reach Out and Touch"

Today I accompanied my husband to our local cancer clinic for a routine check. Today we also met two other patients and their by chance and one at an appointed time that we had previously arranged a few days ago.

One of the cancer patients was there to receive another radiation treatment and during the short time that we had the opportunity to chat with him, instantly we knew that he was so determined to do whatever was prescribed in order to win! His positive atttiude was beaming from within.

The other cancer patient and his wife were wonderful people as well. It seemed as though we have known them for quite awhile, even though our first encounter was only today! We had lots of things to talk about and our time together flew by very quickly. We of course will continue now to keep in touch, as both of our husband's share a common thread....the same type of cancer!

Yesterday I called a friend who had just been diagnosed with cancer. Surgery is inevitable but for now, I just wanted her and the family to know both I and my husband are right there with them. We of course will not intrude on their privacy or on the time that they need right now to get over their initial shock of having cancer, but I wanted them to know they are not alone.

A new cancer patient has introduced herself on the chat forum as well. I'm delighted that she has discovered the site and look forward to her meeting our other chatters.

If you know of someone in your area that might be affected by cancer, reach out and show them that you care. Not everyone has a good support system and you'll be surprised at how wonderful you will feel. Even the smallest gesture will most definitely be appreciated.
Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light.
