Cancer reveals a special grace

-A A +A
By Kay Kerbyson

Cancer is a lonely business. You need friends and loved ones to see you through, but in the end, there’s nothing like having someone who completely understands what you’re going through, from the inside out.
A Cancer Buddy. Because peace, from friendship, is one of the greatest ways of finding relief from the anxiety the disease brings.
So, in this month of ovarian cancer awareness, I’d like to tell you about a very special person, my buddy.
Someone, who is the epitome of why this potentially curable disease, if caught early, needs to be stopped in its tracks.
Someone whose love of life and life to love is being taken away from all of us.
After I was diagnosed, I kept hearing her name, for a whole year.
“Oh you have ovarian cancer, well there’s this lady…”
I used to think ‘who is this woman. Is there anyone she doesn’t know?  I’d love to meet her but she obviously has so many friends already, it’s not like she’s desperate for another - why should I bother her?’
Well, I guess my needs finally outweighed the fear of rejection.
