My world has been shaken to the core today, two of my phyllodes sisters died last night both of them so young and beautiful and so much to give.
Incredible to think that phyllodes can really take a hold so quickly Lynda had been in Atlanta in February at the Conference. However after the journey, had felt so fatigued whilst she was there, we didn’t manage to meet up with her. How can this happen?
So many of my support group are also reeling from this news. I guess, like me, we rely on the little information we have from our medical teams and research that we are forced to do ourselves due to such little information. We must cling to the information we find and through our support network remain resolute that this can’t happen and we can remain positive – but this happens… and I’m left wondering how…
If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or fight like hell. ~Lance Armstrong
I’ll fight. I’ll educate. I’ll make sure that none of my Phyllodes lose their lives in vain. I’ll also make sure that so far as I can find energy, resources and love, I will also ensure that there’s support and a shoulder to lean on when times are tough. I’ll fight like hell… but first I need some recovery time of my own.
