I have never been the kind of person to need support.
I can handle all sorts of things, everything life has had to throw at me. Until now.
I wasn't ready for the news that the god mother of my children, the mother of my god child - one of my closest friends - has cancer.
We have been friends ten years. We met as neighbours and grew to be as close as sisters. So close that we fight like sisters!
Her cancer is serious. She is stage 4. The cancer is in her bowel and it is also in her liver and she tells me its in her shoulder region but im not sure if its the bone or elsewhere.
She has had radiation and is waiting on chemo. But her prognosis isn't good.
She is only 38. She is a mother to 4 beautiful kids.
She has a heart kinder than I ever thought possible.
And this shouldn't be happening to her.
