{solsc} 25/31 #sol16 Cancer sucks


We moved to the area about the same time and met when our oldest sons joined the local Cub Scout pack.  I volunteered to be a leader, Tom was willing to help. Little did we know almost 30 years later, the four of us would still be friends.

We've helped raise each other's kids, celebrated holidays, birthdays, and graduations together. We've been neighbors both in town and the lake. We go to concerts together and enjoy each others company in the quiet of a campfire. 

We've supported each other through the deaths of parents, kids getting in trouble and health issues. Only now, this latest health issue will separate us, will rip apart a friendship strong enough to survive anything. Anything except this.

Cancer sucks.

  1. Deb, which of the four has cancer? And I am so sorry. Yes, cancer does suck. I'm going to be thinking about this all day.

  4. So sorry, Deb! My best friend had cancer when we were in 8th grade (luckily, she survived and has been healthy this whole time!) and it was so scary. Thinking of you and your friend!
