Cancer is an emotional journey....
Saturday, July 31, 2010
I thought that today, I'd share a story directly from this woman. She's BRAVE and participating in this project was huge for her. I couldn't say anything that would mean more than her own words."Cancer has been an emotional journey for me. The goodness in people is truly life affirming. I am filled with gratitude for my friends, family, co-workers/employer and medical team(s). They have been supportive, caring, giving and absolutely wonderful. My husband, John, has been my ROCK! The emotions we have shared on this journey have brought us even closer.
The photo session today was a huge step for me as I'm typically a very private person. On this journey, I have received so much love from everyone and cam to the conclusion that in order to really accept it and give it back, I had to open myself up some. For me this picture was a way to complete that opening up. This is who I am right now, this is me fighting cancer. I will win this fight, I will survive and I will go on with my life a much stronger and better person as a result of it. Thank you for doing this. You are making a difference and that's a wonderful thing." ~ Susanne M.
I couldn't have said anything more poignant than that. I'm so thankful that Susanne was BOLD enough to feel BEAUTIFUL! She's an amazingly sensitive and caring woman. We had a great time together and isn't she gorgeous???!!!
